Rights respecting schoolUnicef Rights Respecting School

We are a Rights Respecting School with students understanding that we follow the United Nations Children's Rights.

All students learn more about their rights and the fact that children around the world have rights also. These rights work alongside our values work. Students learn about being world ready in our Global Citizenship lessons and how they can pledge to make sure that other children have the same rights we have at Aureus School.

Educate and Celebrate

Aureus School Bronze AwardAt Aureus, we have a 'Pride Youth Network' - a group of students who are able to develop skills key to their school career and beyond, such as the ability to work respectfully in a team, build confidence in working in a group and voicing their opinion in a diplomatic way as the award supports the students in making a change to their school community and beyond. 

  • Aureus is a safe environment for staff, students, governors and parents to thrive and achieve, enabling everyone to be themselves without fear of discrimination.
  • We have a zero-tolerance approach to homophobic, biphobic and transphobic language, which our Pride Youth Network is leading a campaign against.
  • We are committed to increasing visibility in our community around Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity.
  • Our approach is preventative, proactive and accessible to all.
  • We believe that every conversation is important to move forward with breaking down the barriers to LGBTQ+ Inclusion.
