Steps to the award
The first thing you need to do to get started with your Rights Respecting journey is to register with us online.
It only takes a few minutes, and can be done by your headteacher or the staff member who will act as the RRSA lead within your school.
Once you’ve completed the form, we will be in touch with you to process your registration. Please let your headteacher and school office know to expect an invoice in the next couple of weeks.
Read the RRSA Membership Terms and Conditions.
We take registrations from the following education settings in the UK:
- Primary schools
- Secondary schools
- Special schools
- Nursery schools
- Pupil referral units
As a registered charity, we rely entirely on voluntary donations to fund our vital work for children and their rights. Therefore, we charge an annual membership fee to enable us to deliver the Rights Respecting Schools programme. This covers everything you need for your Rights Respecting journey including e-learning, training, support from our Professional Advisers, access to online teaching and learning resources and more. You can learn more about what the membership includes here.
Once you have registered with us online, we will share instructions on payment.

Other interested organisations or individuals can also register with us (for free) and become part of our community. We will keep you up to date with the work of UNICEF UK and our Rights Respecting Schools via newsletters and other communications:
- Staff members in existing Rights Respecting Schools
- Local authorities
- Members of educational organisations or other settings who are interested in children’s rights
