UN Convention on the Rights of the Child Article 29 – Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full.
Our school vision, to encourage the development of the personality, talents and mental and physical abilities of the young person to their fullest potential, is built upon the articles from the UNICEF Convention on the Rights of the Child and embodies the Scottish Government’s approach to Getting it Right for Every Child which has the wellbeing of all children and young people at its heart. In Kirkhill, we therefore take every opportunity to consider the individual needs of all pupils based on the wellbeing indicators: Safe, Healthy, Achieving, Nurtured, Active, Respected, Responsible and Included.
The Additional Support Needs Coordinator is the Depute Head Teacher, who is assisted by the other members of the management team who oversee pupils with additional support needs in their department of the school.
The term Additional Support Needs applies to children who, for any reason, require additional support, long or short term, in order to help them make the most of their school education.
