What is Rights Respecting Schools?

Firrhill High School is a Rights Respecting School and currently holds the Silver: Rights Aware Award. The Silver: Rights Aware Award is the second stage of the Rights Respecting Schools programme. Silver level charts Firrhill’s progress through 3 Strands:

  • Teaching and Learning about rights – through training, curriculum, assemblies
  • Teaching and learning through rights – by modelling rights respecting language and attitudes
  • Being ambassadors for the rights of others – developing as rights respecting citizens

We will now continue our journey towards Gold: Rights Respecting. This is granted by Unicef UK to schools that have fully embedded children’s rights throughout the school, in its policies, practice and ethos.

Further information on the Award and the UNCRC is available at –
