Secondary school pupils in Harlesden have become the first in Brent to receive golden recognition for how they treat others.
Newman Catholic College has won the prestigious Unicef UK Gold Award Rights-Respecting Schools Award. It is the only secondary school in Brent involved in the project.
The boys’ school was praised for its excellent relationships between adults and students, and its “very strong focus on inclusion” providing exceptional support for refugee kids.
Staff also “empowered students, who felt listened to and taken seriously”.
Head Danny Coyle said: “NCC is overjoyed that the positive ethos which is such a feature of the school has been recognised by this award.
“We fully intend to use this commendation to support other schools across the UK to achieve the Gold award and in doing so enhance the impact of the concept of rights-respecting schools.”
