Rights Respecting Schools
The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation. The RRSA seeks to put the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of a school’s ethos and culture to improve well-being and develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. A Rights Respecting School is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practised, respected, protected and promoted. Young people and the school community learn about children’s rights by putting them into practice every day.
At Blairgowrie High School we have achieved our Bronze Award from UNICEF in January 2019 and we are well on our way to achieving our Silver Award. Below you will find our Action Plan for Silver which we aim to achieve by June 2020. Our RRS Action Plan is also closely linked to our Relationships Policy.
