School open day: Mearns Primary School (East Renfrewshire)
Main focus: Learner voice and Rights Respecting Schools
Thursday, 13 October 2011, 9.30 am – 3 pm
Mearns Primary School, – this year’s Education Awards in the category ‘Global Citizenship’ -, will provide you with the opportunity to spend the day in the school to talk to staff and pupils about a high level of momentum and commitment to learner voice across the whole school for years. This has enabled the school to transform the ethos as well as the overall life and work of the school and to develop rich learning experiences and activities including:
- Implementing a highly effective pupil participation strategy
- Developing international education programme through the ‘Connecting Classrooms’ programme (British Council) and links with other foreign schools.
- Forging strong partnerships with parents and a wide range of local community groups and businesses.
- Establishing a whole school ethos based on justice, fairness and human rights agenda leading to Rights Respecting Schools accreditation and peer assessor status.
A focus of the event will be to identify and share the practical lessons and ideas that have helped the school move forward in its journey, and also to reflect on the challenges encountered along the way. Time will also be set aside for some professional dialogue and exchange of ideas.
