Rights Respecting School

Bannerman High School has begun an exciting journey towards achieving a Rights Respecting School Award. We have already achieved a Recognition of Commitment status by UNICEF and we are working our way towards achieving level 1 of this award scheme.


What is UNICEF’s Rights Respecting School?

UNICEF is a global charity which protects and supports children. The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos. A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between pupils and adults, between adults and between pupils.A convention is an agreement between countries to obey the same law. The United Kingdom agreed to obey the Convention on the Rights of the Child on 16 December 1991.


We aim to educate our children within a Rights Respecting School

We will do this by:-

·         Providing coherent values values framework which enhances school leadership and ethos.

·         Developing our staff and pupils’ knowledge of the Rights of a Child, based on the Articles of the UNCRC, and how this can affect their own and others’ lives.

·         Unifying a range of educational initiatives such as Sustainable Development, International Education and Citizenship.

·         Helping pupils to develop a stronger sense of the need to act for global justice.
