Admiral Lord Nelson School is the first secondary school in Portsmouth and one of only 6 secondary schools in the South East of England to be accredited with the UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award at Level 2 standard. UNICEF award level 2 status to schools who demonstrate that they have fully embedded the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) into their ethos and curriculum.
Following a rigorous inspection process, our report from UNICEF praised ALNS for its commitment to student welfare and wellbeing, for having an ethos that puts the UNCRC at the heart of the school and the staff for their dedication in embedding the UNCRC into the daily life of the school. We are incredibly proud of our ALNS students are ambassadors for UNICEF, helping other schools develop their work in educating young people about the UNCRC and UNICEF’s Global Goals for Sustainability.
Achieving the Level 2 Rights Respecting School Award comes shortly after a Challenge Partners Quality Assurance Review in which ALNS was accredited as having an Area of Excellent Practice in SMSC, the Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural education of our students. ALNS also holds the Artsmark Platinum Award from the Arts Council England in recognition of the school’s commitment to providing quality Arts experiences for its young people.
We are delighted to have gained these awards that recognise our excellent curriculum at ALNS, based on principles that place the personal development of our young people firmly alongside ensuring their academic success, which is equally impressive at ALNS too!
