This checklist gives a succinct overview of what a school must do to achieve Silver: Rights Aware, the second stage of the Award.
The Strands and Outcomes of the Award
For a school to achieve the Silver: Rights Aware accreditation, it must have evidence that it has reached the three strands of a Rights Respecting School at Silver. A school uses these strands and other guidance provided to plan and monitor progress.

Planning your actions
Use the Action Plan for Silver document completed for the Bronze accreditation to prioritise and carry out actions in the school. The Action Plan for Silver is a working document, so keep adding actions and reviewing your current position to identify impact on being rights respecting.
Use the Action Plan Guidance to support this.

Measure your progress
You might find it useful to carry out the pupil questionnaires and staff questionnaires so that you have an overview of the staff and pupils’ current knowledge and understanding of children’s rights and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. You might find it helpful to transfer the data to the School Questionnaire Summary.
Measuring your progress using our pupil and staff questionnaires can be invaluable in showing you the difference that embedding children’s rights is having. It can also be used within the evidence that you present at Silver and later on, at Gold.
