As part of its global dimension Duke’s Aldridge Academy is also currently working on becoming a Rights Respecting School. The Unicef UK Rights Respecting Schools Award supports schools across the UK to embed children’s human rights in their ethos and culture to improve students well-being and help all children realise their potential. Duke’s own ethos, policies, principles and attributes match the vision and values developed by the RSSA, and the academy’s involvement aims to help students to explore and challenge their own and others’ perspectives and stereotypes considering respect in relation to global knowledge. and have joined the RRSA programme from UNICEF.
