What is RRSA
What is RRSA?
At Pentland Primary, we have formed a partnership with UNICEF UK to promote a child right-based approach to education. The UNICEF UK Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) is based on the principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation.
The intended impact of RRSA on our school community is:
- an increase of levels of respect within our school and community
- a developed sense of security as rights-respecting language and behaviour is used consistently throughout the school
- a deepened understanding and respect for religions, cultures and abilities different to our own
- a deepened understanding of the connections between us and people around the world.
We have an enthusiastic group of staff and pupils who form the Rights Respecting Group. This group meet regularly to plan and deliver dedicated assemblies that promote children’s rights from the Convention. The group is continually monitoring how well are doing and creating ways to inspire others to learn about children’s rights.
At Pentland, we have received our Recognition of Commitment from UNICEF RRSA and are on our way to achieving Level 1.
Embarking on a rights-based education is a really exciting opportunity for all at Pentland and we look forward to involving you on our journey.
Nursery 2017-2018 highlights so far
Children at Pentland Nursery enjoy rich first hand learning experiences. Recently we have worked in partnership with Friends of Fairmilehead Park to plant over 60,000 spring flowering bulbs and visited the Scottish National Gallery for the Wee Wanders tour.
We have made regular trips to the local building site to watch the progress of the new supermarket.
