We are proud to say that we have received our Level 1 Recognition of Commitment from UNICEF for all of our Rights Respecting work throughout our school and within our community.
Here at Chesterton we are a UNICEF Rights Respecting School. We learn about our rights but we also learn 'through’ our rights. To support us in this, we support the ‘WE movement’. WE is all about active participation and providing pupils with the tools to change the world. Our pupils are stepping up and making a difference in their local community and world at large. Through ‘WE’, Chesterton pupils know that no matter your age or where you live, we can all make a positive impact – whether that’s volunteering, fundraising or raising awareness for causes that matter. Our pupils strive to achieve their best for themselves and for others.
