A Clayhall primary school has been recognised by Unicef for its whole-hearted respect of children’s rights.

Glade Primary School, in Atherton Road, held an assembly to celebrate receiving a silver award from the international children’s charity Unicef on Tuesday, October 9.

The award is granted to schools that explicitly embed the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child into their policies, practices and culture.

It comes after 12 pupils collaborated with their music teacher Davida Robinson and her partner, Jason Rose, to compose a song entitled For Every Child.

Headteacher Angela Walsh said: “The pupils have embraced the Unicef programme with enthusiasm and this award very much reflects the positive ethos and attitude of the whole school community.”

Paul Harris, a rights respecting schools assessor at Unicef, said: “The school is nurturing in pupils a deep awareness of children’s rights.”
