RRSA Gold Award

On the first day of term, we returned to some excellent news. Unicef UK informed us that OMS has been successfully re-accredited as a Gold Award Rights Respecting School. This follows an assessment visit in December, which involved Unicef UK assessors interviewing some of our children as well as staff and governors.

We began our Rights Respecting journey in 2015 and first received the Gold Award in 2018, becoming only the second school in Northumberland to achieve the top award. The rights (or articles) in the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) provide a framework for learning about rights, embedding rights in school life and promoting rights more widely.

Our re-accreditation reflects, in the words of the Unicef UK report, ‘a very strong commitment across the school to the children’s learning about personal development and wellbeing’. The report refers to being impressed by our ‘very confident and articulate children who came across as kind and inclusive young people’.

The report acknowledged that ‘children’s rights are embedded across the school and underpin every facet of school life’ and that ‘wellbeing is a high priority for the school’. It praised the role of Personal Development lessons (introduced in September) and our enhanced PSHE provision, among other things, in supporting this. It also said that, in interviews with children, ‘the kindness and approachability of the staff was emphasised several times’ and that ‘pupils spoke very positively about relationships with their peers’.

We will be sustaining the work that has been done in recent years to achieve these successes – and we have plans to further develop this work. We are proud of the many ways in which children at OMS continue to embody the values that go towards being a Rights Respecting School.

A parent guide to Age-Inappropriate Content

“Inappropriate” means different things to different people. What’s acceptable for one age group, for example, may be unsuitable for a slightly younger audience. Online, young people can chance upon inappropriate content in various way – from pop-up ads to TikTok videos. The increasingly young age at which children become active in the digital world heightens the risk of them innocently running into something that they find upsetting or frightening. Trusted adults need to be able to help children be aware of what to do if they’re exposed to age-inappropriate content.

In the guide, you’ll find tips on a number of potential risks such as social media, gaming and adverts.
