Welcome to our Rights Respecting School
This year Monifieth High School has been working towards recognition as a Rights Respecting School, working with UNICEF to educate pupils and staff on children's rights and how to put them into practice every day. The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos.
A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children’s rights but also models right and respect in all its relationships. This means that the whole school community will learn about rights, pupils will be involved in decisions about their school and the school community will have the knowledge to take action on standing up for rights of children across the world.
We are very happy to announce we have been awarded our Bronze Badge, and are currently working towards our silver.
A Right's Respecting School doesn't just benefit the school, it makes a positive impact on the whole community.
Children are healthier and happier
Children feel safe
Children have better relationships
Children become active and involved in school life and the wider world.
