At Wormholt Park School we were very proud to hold our Level 2 UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award.
Everyone is now delighted that after our Reaccreditation in Summer 2019, we maintained this status, which is now called Gold!
This award shows the caring nature of children at Wormholt Park School.
So, we are now a Gold Rights Respecting School!
We are proud to be Active Global Citizens; the children do an amazing job of taking responsibility for their environment and playing an active and enthusiastic role in the life of the school.
We learn about the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC)
Each week, the children celebrate their Rights Respecting achievements by nominating a friend to sit on 'Top Table' and enjoy an extra special lunch! These children are also acknowledged and celebrated each week during our whole school assembly.
We are so proud to have attained this award, as 'equality for all' is at the heart of everything we do at Wormholt. The people who assessed our initial application were really impressed with all the work that has been done.
“We were so impressed with the quality and presentation of your evidence; it was an absolute pleasure to verify. Thank you so much for your time and obvious commitment to this project. ”
Well done Wormholt!

Being awarded the Equalities award demonstrates that we are passionate about equality for all – irrespective of disability/SEN, ethnicity, faith or religion, gender and socio-economic background.
The EQualities Award was developed in response to the Equality Act 2010. The Act places both general and specific duties upon all public bodies, such as local authorities, schools and other state funded educational settings including children’s centres and academies.
The general duty (from April 2011) requires public bodies to have due regard to:
Advancing equality of opportunity
Fostering good relations
The specific duties (from April 2012) require local authorities and schools to:
Publish information which shows their compliance with the general duty
Publish specific and measureable equality objectives to meet the general duty
We have received an engraved contemporary wall plaque to mark our achievement, so look out for that in the office.
