Our Journey to becoming a UNICEF Rights Respecting School
We are delighted to announce that ISA has begun its journey to become a UNICEF Rights Respecting School.
This is an exciting opportunity for our school community to recognise the many different activities and approaches that support children’s rights that already exist in our school.
In March 2021, the Scottish Government became the first country in the United Kingdom to incorporate UNCRC into law so ISA’s timing could not be better.
Over the next few years, we will build on these to put the UN’s Convention on the Rights of the Child at the heart of ISA; giving all our students the opportunity to:
📝 learn about rights
📝 learn through rights
📝 learn for rights
Not just for them but for children all over the world.
Since January, we have been establishing a baseline for what students understand about rights and how they feel their rights are being met at ISA. Staff, students and parents are busily putting the finishing touches to our Silver Award Action Plan so that from August, ISA can begin to weave the principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination, and participation through all aspects of our life and work.
