Our aim is to ensure all pupils in Bargarran have access to their rights.
We are proud to be ‘Going for Gold!’
Everyone at Bargarran Primary is working very hard towards our Rights Respecting Schools Gold Award. Here are some of the fun and interesting things we have been doing.
Our Pupil Parliament
Our pupil parliament meet regularly to discuss our Rights Respecting Schools work. We have been looking at the Gold Award outcomes and coming up with ways we can achieve these within our school. We also created a topic for each class in the school based on one of the 17 Global Goals. We created a list of suggested activities so that we could have our say in what learning looks like in our school! Our parliament members enjoy being spokes people throughout the school. They help to remind everyone about what their rights and how they are protected by being a Rights Respecting School.
We love to get involved in our local community. Here are some of the things we have been doing!
- Food Bank Collections
- Costume Bank Collection
- Community Cafe
- Community Meal
- Choir & P7 visits to Erskine Home
- Library Visits
- and much more!
At Bargarran we love fundraising for local charities in a variety of creative ways. As a Rights Respecting School, we also regularly fund-raise for UNICEF and have taken part in the Soccer Aid Challenge!
Our parents have been involved in our Rights Respecting Work. We have shown our Rights learning and Global Goals topics at our open afternoon and through our Rights Respecting assembly. We have also had a very successful Mindfulness Mondays club with pupils and parents where we took part in a number of activities to look after our social and emotional well-being.
Campaigns & Actions
Every class in the school has taken part in a topic on one of the 17 Global Goals and taken action towards this goal. P1, 2/1 and 2 have been encouraging others to recycle more plastic. P3 have been collecting for our food bank and encouraging less food waste in the lunch hall. P4 and 5/4 have been discouraging excessive use of fossil fuels. P5 have been power monitoring around the school to ensure we don’t waste energy. P6 & 7 raised money for UNICEF gifts to reduce inequalities around the globe.
We have also taken part in the UNICEF OutRight campaign for 2 years running. We were delighted to receive a letter from our MP about the work we have been doing.
Rights Respecting Workshops
We have annual Rights Respecting workshops. Our most recent of which looked at the concept of dignity.
Regular Rights Learning
At Bargarran, we regularly include discussions about rights and the UNCRC. We have regular whole school assemblies, some directly linked to Rights and others demonstrate links between the UNCRC and other areas of school life.
Rights are embedded in our planning for learning and are regularly discussed throughout lessons and during stand along rights activities.
We all have a voice!
As a Rights Respecting School our pupils all have a voice to express their views on their education and what would make our school a better place!
