Rights Respecting School Award
A Rights Respecting School not only teaches about children's rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers/adults and pupils, between adults, and between pupils.
Since 2012, Sgoil Bhaile a' Mhanaich has been working towards becoming a RRSA accredited school. We achieved our Gold award in 2019!
To be accredited as rights-respecting, a school must show evidence that it has reached all four of the standards:
1. Rights-respecting values underpin leadership and management;
2. The whole-school community learns about the Convention;
3. There is a rights-respecting ethos;
4. Children are empowered to become active citizens and learners
