Rights Respecting Schools
Our Rights Respecting Schools Journey
We began our Rights Respecting Schools journey in April 2019.
In June 2019 we were awarded our Bronze: Rights Committed Award
In August 2019, we started to work towards achieving our Silver Award by working through our School RRS Action Plan. This includes:
-All within our school community learning about the articles which make up the UN Rights of the Child.
-All within our school community learning why it is important that we have these rights in place and why sometimes others do not have their rights fulfilled.
In School we have been learning: -About Children’s Rights
-To be Ambassadors for the Rights of Others
We have had a lots of discussion around the Right children have o an Education and the ways that their right to an Education can be honoured. We discussed what makes a positive school environments that promotes and honours this rights and anything which may prevent them from accessing their right to an Education.
From this we created a vision of what we would like our School to ‘look’ and ‘sound’ like as a Rights Respecting School and came up with a poster showing things which make Aberuthven PS a Rights Respecting School.
We also worked in small groups to created an Aberuthven PS song which encompasses both Rights Respecting Schools and our Circle of Success to celebrate all of the wonderful things about our School. Please have a listen to each of the 3 songs below.
Please help us to choose which one will become our school song by taking part in our Twitter poll!
Our Silver Award Accreditation visit will take place on Monday 10th February 2020.
Please follow the link below for the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. This is a child friendly document which allow children of all ages and stages the opportunity to discuss and understand their rights.

We are now ‘going for GOLD!!’
