The first thing you need to do to get started with your rights-respecting journey is to register with us online.

School registrations

It takes a few minutes to register your school with us online. This can done by the headteacher or the staff member who will lead the RRSA initiative. 

Once you’ve completed the form, we will be in touch with you to process your registration. Please note there is a charge of £250 for schools to register (or £50 for schools with fewer than 100 pupils). Find out more about what you need to do to get started.

We take registrations from the following education settings in the UK:

  • Primary schools
  • Secondary schools
  • Special schools
  • Pupil Referral Units

Unfortunately we are not able to take registrations from early years settings. We have had a huge amount of interest from early years settings but we do not yet have the capacity to provide the specialist support and guidance required to assess settings in this phase.

Registration charge

In order to be able to provide centralised support for schools, there is a charge of £200 for schools to register. Registration cost for schools with less than 100 pupils is £50. This charge will cover the support provided to schools over the full duration of their rights-respecting journey. Read more about our costs.

Once you have registered with us online, we will send you an invoice. 

Who else can register?

Other interested organisations or individuals can also register with us (for free) and become part of our community. We will keep you up to date with the work of Unicef UK and our Rights Respecting Schools via newsletters and other communications:
