What is Bronze: Rights Committed?

Home > Bronze: Rights Committed > What is Bronze: Rights Committed?

Bronze: Rights Committed is the first stage of the Rights Respecting Schools Award

It is primarily a planning stage for the second stage of the RRSA, Silver: Rights Committed. When you are ready, you will supply documented evidence of your school’s commitment and how you intend to become rights respecting.

We estimate it takes a school between 3-6 months to achieve Bronze. There is no assessment visit for Bronze.

Before starting to work towards Bronze, please make sure you have visited the Getting Started page and have registered your school with us.


Achieving Bronze: Rights Committed means there is evidence that:

  • You have introduced the RRSA Three Strands into your school community
  • Your school’s senior leadership team (SLT) understands what is involved in the Award and is committed to embarking on the Unicef UK rights respecting journey
  • The right foundations are in place for your school’s journey to the second stage of the Award, Silver: Rights Aware

We have two training courses to help registered schools achieve Bronze: Rights Committed:

  • Achieving Bronze – Face to face training for one day, facilitated by a Professional Adviser and joined by fellow teachers to share your progress with other schools at the same stage
  • Starting RRSA Online – An online training course to help kick-start your RRSA journey, with guidance from a Professional Adviser and online discussion forums with fellow teachers
