At Monifieth High School we aim to help everyone to be happy, healthy, resilient and responsible. Our vision is to prepare young people for success now and in the future by developing skills and values through inspiring learning and teaching in a nurturing and supportive environment. Our values of Respect, Fairness and Kindness underpin everything we do, how we think, act and speak. As a community we work together to achieve the very best outcomes for everyone in our school.
We are currently working through our Strategic Plan 2022-25 which focusses on our three key priorities for improvement:
Learning, teaching and curriculum
In order to ensure success for young people, we are proud of the wide range of support on offer for our learners and of the opportunities available through and beyond classroom activities.
Monifieth High School has a rich tradition of supporting learners to succeed. The development of skills for learning, life and work are central to our curriculum and we continue to enhance our approaches to Developing the Young Workforce through the development of Meta-Skills and in our approaches to relevant and engaging experiences with the world of work. This leads to our continuing success in ensuring positive post-school destinations.
We place great emphasis as a school on helping young people to be their best self and consider how to help others and be leaders in their community. Our Learner Leadership Team consists of our School Captains, Learning Council and Rights Respecting School group members. Throughout the year they meet regularly as sub-groups and as a team, engaging with key staff members to help plan improvement. They make detailed and highly informed input into school improvement priorities and regularly address emerging issues as a key part of our self-evaluation.
We provide a wide range of opportunities and experiences for young people to develop their skills and gain qualifications through activities within and out of classroom.
We are proud to have achieved our UNCRC Rights Respecting School Bronze Award. Planning is now underway for achieving Silver. The importance of looking after one another, supporting each other to succeed and striving to make our world a better place have never been more important and that is what we challenge our young people to do, working together with our whole school community.
