Julia Kay, teacher and Unicef lead for GANF said: “We are delighted that GANF has met the standard for Unicef UK’s Rights Respecting Schools Award. We had previously been awarded bronze status in recognition of the awareness raised within our curriculum and ethos as being a ‘Rights Respecting School’.
"A Rights Respecting School is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted.
"The next step is to continue the hard work as we look to achieveGold Rights Respecting status.”
