A school in Dagenham has received an award from a global children’s aid and rights organisation.
All Saints Catholic School was granted a silver rights-respecting school award by Unicef UK.
The award recognises schools that show commitment to promoting and realising children’s rights and to encouraging everyone to respect the rights of others.
Silver recipients are those that are making excellent progress towards embedding the principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child into its ethos, curriculum and practice.
Headteacher Clare Cantle said: “We are delighted that our mission to respect and nurture the dignity of every individual in our community has been recognised by Unicef.
