Our School Charter created by the whole school community defines a set of values which are actively upheld by all designed by RRS Steering Group member Catriona Newman.
Campbeltown Grammar School will be:
Teaching and Learning ABOUT Rights
Teaching and Learning THROUGH Rights
Teaching and Learning FOR Rights
The Unicef Rights Respecting School Award(RRSA) helps schools to use the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) as the values framework.
The UNCRC enhances pupils’ understanding of the consequences of individual and group actions on the rights of others locally and globally. The articles of the Convention are based on the recognition of every child’s basic needs in order to thrive. The UNCRC sets out a child’s rights to:
Survive and have good health
Be protected from harm
Develop their talents and skills
Participate in the world to which they belong.
Pupils learn about the UNCRC, and the rights set out in it, in assemblies, from presentations from visiting speakers, in PSHE and in curricular areas.
Examples of pupils engaging with rights:
Creating posters in S3 Business
