Join us on our Rights Respecting School journey!

As part of our school’s visions and values, we are working towards recognition as a Rights Respecting School. This is an award which is given to schools on behalf of UNICEF. Because of all the work we have put in so far, we have now achieved the SILVER Award!

By exploring the ‘Rights Respecting School’ award (RRSA) we hope to help our pupils to grow into confident, caring and responsible young citizens both in school and within the wider community. Through learning about what their rights are, and joining various Pupil Voice groups, your children will also learn how to respect those rights.

Our pupils are encouraged to reflect on how their behaviour and actions affect those around them through The Big 3, which allows us to build and maintain a positive and safe learning environment for all, both in the classroom and around the school.  We have been doing this in class, in assemblies and through focus weeks such as Anti-Bullying Week. Remember to follow us on Twitter (@ClermistonPS) to see what kinds of things we get up to!

We really hope that you will feel able to support us and your child in working towards our goal of being a GOLD Rights Respecting School. We’d love for you to become involved.
