Rights Respecting School

Kinross High School achieved the Bronze Rights Respecting School Award in June 2020! 

There have been many steps to get us to where we are now on our journey towards becoming a Rights Respecting School. Here is what we have achieved so far to be awarded Bronze status:

Gathering data from pupils, parents/carers and staff

In June we asked some of our stakeholders to feedback on the ethos and culture of learner participation in Kinross High School via focus groups and surveys.  Through this we identified that we could be doing more as a whole school to promote the rights of our young people. Staff completed the RRSA survey provided by UNICEF and pupils have completed PSE lessons around Rights of the Child, with the opportunity to feedback their views.

Meeting with St. John's Academy

St. John's Academy in Perth started their Rights Respecting School 8 years ago and have been very successful in achieving Gold Status. We look forward to working with St. John's and supporting each other with our Rights Respecting goals.

TSG Programme

In TSG our pupils have been participating activities promoting the rights of the child on the lead up to World Children's Day. Our collegiate group created an inclusive and interactive TSG programme for our young people which has been received positively.

Pupil Leadership Team Induction Day

In October our pupil leadership team had their initial induction which was a huge success. Our house teams worked together in developing plans for the year. They also participated in some Rights Respecting activities and focused on their role in promoting Article 12. We look forward to our Recall day in February.

Recruiting a steering group

Benarty house will take the role of our Rights Respecting Steering group.  The purpose of the group is to create and drive forward the Rights Respecting School targets for the school.
