UNICEF Rights Respecting Group

Almost 10 years after becoming the first UK independent school to gain Gold status as a UNICEF Rights Respecting School, George Heriot’s is delighted to announce its re-accreditation as a Gold status school once more.

The Assessor commented ‘it is evident that children’s rights are embedded across the school and underpin every facet of school life’.

Heriot’s is proud to be recognised by UNICEF for highly effective leadership of rights related work at all levels, including from young people. We look forward to continuing this work as part of the school’s ongoing commitment to creating a school community which is inclusive and respects the rights of everyone.
