What is Rights Respecting Schools?
Firrhill High School is a Rights Respecting School and has achieved the Gold: Rights Respecting Award.
The Gold: Rights Respecting Award is the final stage of the Rights Respecting Schools programme. Gold level charts Firrhill’s progress through 3 Strands aiming to intensify and broaden:
Teaching and Learning about rights – through training, curriculum, assemblies, topics, focus weeks and displays
Teaching and learning through rights – by modelling rights respecting language and attitudes
Being ambassadors for the rights of others – developing as rights respecting citizens
Firrhill has explicitly adopted a child rights approach based around the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and has embedded this through school policy, practice and culture.
