How much does the Rights Respecting Schools Award cost?

Home > About the Rights Respecting Schools Award > How much does the Rights Respecting Schools Award cost?

As a registered charity we rely entirely on voluntary donations to fund our vital work for children and their rights. The Rights Respecting Schools Award does not make a profit – our charges simply aim to cover the costs of running the programme.

We do want interested schools to be able to become rights-respecting. Please contact us if the registration fee causes any difficulties.

One-off registration charge

In order to be able to provide centralised support for schools, there is a one-off charge of £250 for schools to register. Registration costs for schools with fewer than 100 pupils is £50.

You can register online for the Rights Respecting Schools Award, and we will send you an invoice.

The one-off registration charge allows us to support schools with services including:

  • Central administrative email and telephone support
  • Half-termly email newsletters letting you know about training and support options, teaching resources and RRSA school successes
  • A website with guidance about how to become rights-respecting, resources, news and other information
  • A monitoring database to help us track your school’s progress and provide appropriate support interventions.
The school’s promotion of rights means that pupils understand and respect everyone’s entitlement to learn. Relationships between staff and pupils are warm and respectful. Consequently, lessons are very productive and progress without interruption.

School support

We offer a range of support options to work jointly with school leaders to achieve the Rights Respecting Schools Award. Schools find that working directly with our Professional Advisors enables them to maintain progress from registering with Unicef UK through to becoming fully rights-respecting and being accredited as Level 2.

We offer two types of support: support visits to schools, and cluster support.

Support Visits

We can offer tailored support to individual schools, including through support visits and tailored training delivered in your school. The nature of the support needed will be agreed by Unicef UK’s Professional Advisor and the school’s RRSA programme lead.

Support visits can be booked by schools on a day or half day basis. The visits would need to be booked a minimum of one month in advance.

Below you can find more information about how much different support packages can cost. To ensure that Unicef UK can continue to support children throughout the world, the Rights Respecting Schools programme is committed to recovering its costs. We do not make any profit

  • Half day support: £400
  • Full day support: £750
  • Support visits: £250 – minimum of 2 hours
  • Twilight support visits (after school hours): £250 – minimum of 1h30

Contact your RRSA Professional Advisor to book any support days or visits. For questions, email us at rrsa@unicef.org.uk.

Cluster support for groups of schools in one area

We can offer support on becoming rights-respecting to to schools by group or cluster of schools.

Like individual school visits, cluster support to schools will vary in nature and can be tailored to the group’s needs. Compared to individual school support visits, school cluster packages offer economies in terms of joint working.
