Rights Respecting School

Warblington School is proud to be part of the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools award.  This means everything within our ethos and values is based around the human rights of all children.  Currently 1.5 million children in the UK attend a Rights Respecting School, where children are respected, their talents are nurtured and they are able to thrive.

 As a Rights Respecting School, where children’s rights are promoted and realised, the adults and students work towards this goal together.  As part of our journey we are proud to be rapidly developing our student voice and student leadership opportunities.

 Since December 2016 we have been awarded our Recognition of Commitment by UNICEF and are aiming to apply for our Level 1 Award during the academic year.

 As part of our Recognition of Commitment, Warblington School has set up a student Steering group.  This group is made up of one representative from each tutor group across the school.  This group has worked with the school community to devise our own Class Charter which will focus on the eight key articles that we feel are especially important to our school.

As we move towards our Level 1 we would like to involve more parents in our journey.  If you are interested in helping us on our journey, please do not hesitate to contact the school via email on admin@warblington.hants.sch.uk or by phone to the school reception.
