Rights Respecting – UNICEF
Nottingham Academy Primary is working towards becoming a UNICEF Rights Respecting School, currently we are proud to have recived Bronze Status.
UNICEF is the world’s leading organisation working for children and their rights and in 1989, governments worldwide promised all children the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential and a rights respecting school teaches the children these principles. From this starting point they also learn their responsibility to respect others rights in all relationships in the community.
The Nottingham Academy believe strongly in the ethos and values of the UNICEF ‘Rights Respecting School’ award. We are all working hard together towards gaining this status.

Rights Respecting School Award
Every term staff and pupils celebrate one of our core values. Our Rights Respecting Ambassadors are champions at ensuring these values become embedded in day to day life at Nottingham Academy.
- Autumn 1 – Playing fairly and thoroughly
- Autumn 2 – Use your talents to achieve your best
- Spring 1 – Listen to others views
- Spring 2 – Respect the environment
- Summer 1 – Respect all relationships
- Summer 2 – Resilience of body and mind
UNICEF Rights Respecting Ambassadors
Our Rights Respecting Ambassadors act as our pupil voice. One child is voted for from Year 1 to Year 6. We will be meeting with the ambassadors once a term to discuss developments, progress and ideas relating to the school themes and other Rights Respecting issues.
Each class at the Nottingham Academy has created their own class charter linked to articles they believe have a significance in their lives, both in and outside of school.
