Achieving Bronze

During the Coronavius

Home > Supporting Schools During the Coronavirus > Achieving Bronze During the Coronavirus

We know there is a lot going on in your school right now.

Coronavirus has had a huge impact on children in the UK and their rights. So, we understand if your Rights Respecting work is on hold right now.

But you may find this period a useful time to achieve Bronze and take the first step to making rights a reality for children and young people in your school.

If so, we have made it simpler than ever to do.

Streamlining Bronze

During school closures we have streamlined what we expect you to have in place in order to achieve Bronze.

Ordinarily we would expect a steering group to be established and your pupil and staff questionnaires to be completed. We would also expect you to submit an action plan for Silver outlining how you will make progress in your Rights Respecting work.

But during schools closures we will only require you to complete an action plan and send that through to us at rrsa@unicef.org.uk

Our team will review it, send you some feedback and we will award your school Bronze-Rights Committed.

Creating your Action Plan for Silver

We still recommend you become familiar with the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and understand the principles and processes that underpin your Rights Respecting work before you submit the Action Plan.

To make this easy we are giving schools free access to our online learning course, Achieving Bronze, while schools remain closed. Email us for access.

Once you have completed the short training course, we recommend completing your Action Plan for Silver soon after.

Find the Action Plan for Silver form here. Use the “RAG rating” to prioritise your areas for development.

And use our Teaching and Learning Toolbox to help you identify actions to strengthen each Strand of your planning.

If you have any questions, please get in touch via email or through our Facebook community group.
