The Silver: Rights Aware Accreditation Visit

Home > Silver: Rights Aware > The Silver: Rights Aware Accreditation Visit

The Silver: Rights Aware accreditation visits are generally carried out by one Unicef UK assessor.

The Silver accreditation visit

On the accreditation visit, the assessor(s) will have meetings with:

  • The headteacher and senior leaders to discuss their role in achieving the three RRSA Strands
  • Staff, governors and parents
  • Groups of students

They will take a tour of the school and look at the evidence showing how the Strands and Outcomes have been met. At the end of the accreditation visit, they will feedback to the headteacher and members of the senior leadership team.

Have a look at our suggested accreditation visit programme. Your Professional Adviser will ask you to adapt it to suit your school day and add times. The accreditation visit usually takes 3 to 4 hours. If possible, please allocate a room for the assessor(s) for the day where they can have a base to look through the evidence.

Please send your accreditation visit programme to your Professional Adviser a week ahead of the day.



The assessor(s) will tell you on the day of the accreditation visit if you have been successful in meeting the Silver: Rights Aware criteria.
