UNICEF UK are unfortunately no longer able to take registrations for our Rights Respecting Schools Award initiative from Early Years Settings.

We have in the last few months suddenly had a huge amount of interest in early years and we do not have the capacity to provide the specialist support and guidance required or to assess settings in this phase.

UNICEF UK is absolutely committed to working with children from 0 to 18 and we are currently trying to strengthen our work in early years.

We are developing a small pilot in Early Years Settings and are working closely with around fifty settings to develop a child rights award which is appropriate for early years.
