We are a Rights Respecting School
We would like to announce that we have achieved the prestigious Level 2 Rights Respecting Schools Award following a very thorough assessment in October 2014 by two UNICEF assessors. We are the first school in Stockton to achieve this and we are very proud of the children and staff who continue to demonstrate their commitment and enthusiasm for the project. The report states, “It is impossible to visit The Glebe without being acutely aware that the UNCRC is an integral aspect of the school.” Our thanks also go to our Governors Mrs K Richmond and Cllr N Wilburn for their help with the steering group and the assessment day.
RRSA Champions – every class has an RRSA Champion who watches for children who show respect for others and the champions can award a prize to rights respecting children.

The RRSA award is a UNICEF supported project which provides the framework, training and support for schools to improve awareness of the CRC (Convention for the Rights of the Child) throughout the school curriculum.
We have now achieved Level 2 and we have seen many benefits such as:
- Pupils’ enhanced moral development
- Improved behaviour and relationships in the playground
- More positive and caring attitudes towards diversity in society and the reduction of prejudice
- Pupils’ development as global citizens
- Overall school improvement including the learning environment and attitudes to learning
The RRSA steering group meets every term to discuss new ideas. If you would like to get involved please see Miss Walsh.
‘This is an inclusive school and staff work tirelessly in promoting diversity and respect for each other and for different cultures. Pupils have a well-developed understanding of the rights of the child. The school’s commitments as a “rights respecting” school are woven through the broad and balanced curriculum.’
