Stanford Junior and Infant School
Living together - Learning together
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a "blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all". The SDGs were set up in 2015 by the United Nations General Assembly and are intended to be achieved by the year 2030. At Stanford, we will endeavour to factor learning about these goals for the future, through a range of exciting projects and lessons.
Our school is part of a cluster group of UK and Ugandan schools. Our primary partner school is Kayenje Catholic Primary School in the Butambala region of Uganda. We have started initial communications with the school and we are looking forward to sharing work on other projects over the coming academic year.
The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) is based on the United Nations Charter of the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). In 2018, Stanford achieved the Bronze achievement of the RRSA, to show that we had made steps to be initially aware of the UNCRC. We are in the process of following our action plan from which we hope to achieve a Silver accreditation. We will keep this part of the website update with any projects and activities we complete that are linked to children's rights.
