Middleton is a UNICEF Rights Respecting School
The UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos.
We provide as many varied opportunities as possible to ensure each child reaches their true potential and gains full and equal access to a challenging and creative curriculum.
Developing citizenship, environmental awareness and a healthy lifestyle are central to our core purpose. Our aim is for all children to feel safe, happy and healthy within our learning environment. We promote positive behaviour and attitudes that allow us to understand our World and help to protect our future. We strive to develop kindness, fairness and understanding at school and in the wider community. We believe that this is achieved through working as a team and in partnership with parents and the local community.

What we’ve been up to…
Last week 12 pupils had a fun day out at the Tennis Centre. Mark Dennison ,from BBC Radio Nottingham, interviewed some of them. Here is the Podcast:
Our RRSA steering group children were invited to be involved in a special fundraising event to help our sister school in Togo. The students organising this event were inspired by our RRSA group’s workshop on Children’s Rights in December 2017 and as a result wanted to help promote RRSA in the University. The fundraising event took place at the University, where we helped to sell cakes, tombola tickets and distribute leaflets about UNICEF and our sister school in Togo. We were also given a tour of the university and had a competition to design a university .Thanks to our students we helped to raised £100.83 . We had a fantastic day and returned to school with treats provided by the students and their tutor Fiona Hunter.
