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.
