Register for the Rights Respecting Schools Award
The first thing you need to do to get started with your rights-respecting journey is to register with us online.
It takes a few minutes to register your school with us. This can done by the headteacher or the staff member who will act as the RRSA lead within your school.
Once you’ve completed the form, we will be in touch with you to process your registration.
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 as we do not yet have the capacity to provide the specialist support and guidance required to assess settings in this phase.
Applications from international schools are occasionally accepted under certain circumstance. Please get in touch with us for more information.
In order to be able to provide centralised support for schools, there is a charge of £250 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.
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:
- Staff members in existing Rights Respecting Schools
- Local authorities
- Members of educational organisations or other settings who are interested in children’s rights
