We’re delighted to share that PBIS has been re-awarded the Bronze Social Impact Distinction in recognition of our commitment to placing the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the UN Sustainable Development Goals at the heart of our ethos and our continuous work forward becoming a Nord Anglia Social Impact School.

Our students have been working on a variety of projects linked to Social Impact, organising Student Leadership Day, ECO Summit, Mental Health & Wellbeing Week, Global Goals Day and much more. They have also been involved in a variety of projects related to increasing awareness of our impact on environment, and also working with charities donating and helping those in need both in our community and around the world.

The Social Impact Distinction with UNICEF is a three-tiered award based on the principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination, and participation in student voice. It takes a whole-school approach to child rights education, which can be defined as learning about rights, learning through rights, and learning for rights within an overall context of education as a right.

The Social Impact Award has 3 strands:

  • Learning about rights and goals: our students learn about the UN Convention on the Rights of the child and the UN Sustainable Development Goals and think about how these apply to their own lives and the situations of other children around the world.
  • Learning through rights: we put children’s rights at the heart of our school community to help promote positive behaviour, respectful relationships and intercultural understanding.
  • Learning for rights: our students use their knowledge of rights and goals to positively influence our school community, through student voice, advocating for goals and rights in the wider community and helping other children access their rights.

Our Social Impact team is now working towards achieving the Silver Award Distinction, which will provide evidence that we are rights and goals committed.
