Rights Respecting School Award

 

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. 

Blairgowrie High School has formed a steering group to begin work to implement the values of a Rights Respecting School with an aim to achieve the award.  This requires the input of pupils, teaching and non-teaching adults, as well as the wider community.  All members of the school community are invited to join the steering group, see Mr Stewart (DHT).
