This checklist gives a succinct overview of what a school must do to achieve Bronze: Rights Committed, the first step of the Award.
The Strands and Outcomes of the Award
For a school to achieve accreditation, it must have evidence that it has reached the three strands of a Rights Respecting School. A school uses these strands and other guidance provided to plan and monitor progress.
Planning your actions
Schools must complete the Action Plan for Silver to review their current situation and plan what they will do to become rights respecting. Use the Action Plan: Guidance to support this.
Measuring your starting point
We need to evaluate our work to help ensure that we are having a positive impact on the lives of children. The Schools Questionnaire: Guidance below explains how we are evaluating the impact of the Award and what support we need from your school to do this.
A brief overview of our approach to measuring impact is also available below. It is a PowerPoint presentation and is called Measuring Our Impact: Introduction for Schools. Before starting to collect the data, however, please ensure you read the Schools Questionnaire: Guidance as it provides more detail about the process.
The questionnaires are available below and are also available online. If you would like to do the questionnaires online, please contact your Professional Adviser, who can give you access to them.
School Context Data form
This is not a required part of the accreditation process for Bronze. However, please complete the form with information from the last full academic year if you haven’t already, and return it to your Professional Adviser.
