Cowplain pre-school is first for rights

College in running for top national awards

Have your say

THE Cowplain Community pre-school has become the first in the UK to be named a Unicef Rights Respecting School.

The scheme promotes learning about the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and asks that they are placed at the heart of schools, normally from primary school level upwards.

The school was then assessed by Unicef and staff returned after the summer break to find the certificate waiting for them.
