Pantysgallog Primary has been working with UNICEF over the past five years, and has recently been awarded the prestigious Gold Award after working through the Bronze and Silver awards.
The award is granted by UNICEF UK to schools that have fully embedded children’s rights throughout the school in its policies, practice and ethos.
In order for the Gold award to be granted, schools are assessed by a UNICEF Professional Adviser who looks at the impact that has been made through embedding children’s rights into school life.
Since achieving the Gold Award, the school has been asked to prepare a case study, which recently went live on the UNICEF website, reaching schools and young people across the globe.
Mrs Hannah Trinder, Assistant Headteacher at Pantysgallog Primary commented, “The Gold award acknowledges a whole school achievement. Pupils and staff have worked together to embed the UNICEF principles into everything we do at Pantysgallog. The principles ensure that Pantysgallog is a safe place where staff and pupils have a mutual respect for one another.
“The Gold award is the highest stage of the Rights Respecting Schools programme, we now have to ensure that the policies and practices we have adopted are sustained”.
Cllr Michelle Jones, Cabinet Member for Education commented, “What a fantastic and well-deserved achievement for a wonderful school. Congratulations to all of the pupils on this incredible award and well done to all staff involved, for their dedication to their pupils’ rights and wellbeing”.
