Many schools engaged in the Rights Respecting Schools Award develop their own resources for their rights respecting work.
If you’d like to share materials that your school has created, please read our submission guidance below. We welcome submissions from all schools involved in the Rights Respecting Schools Award. Send us ideas for class activities, displays and charters, newsletters, letters to parents, assembly plans, videos, songs and other materials. All submitted materials are quality checked by our team.
We share these materials with everyone involved and interested in the Award via this webpage or on our separate online storage site (this is available to registered schools only).
We will add materials as we receive them from schools, so please come back to this page on a regular basis.
