Brent school gets top marks from Unicef

Braintcroft Primary School is the first in Brent to get the award

A school in Brent has been recognised by the charity UNICEF after impressing visiting assessors last month.

Braintcroft Primary School in Dollis Hill, Neasden, is the first school in Brent to achieve UNICEF’S Rights Respecting Schools Award.

The school was visited by two UNICEF assessors who spoke to children, staff and parents and met with groups of children including the pupil elected school council.

In a letter to the children the assessors said: “We would like to thank you for the warm welcome we received and for the leadership and hard work of Nicola Inson and all the staff which has resulted in this achievement.

“Thank you too for inviting us to lunch.”
