Inverclyde Council’s Rights Respecting Schools Award Project (RRSA) is steeped in the premise developed by UNICEF that children and young people can raise their achievement at school and improve the quality of their own and their families’ lives if they learn exactly what their rights and responsibilities are. Moreover, children and young people will make informed decisions and become confident, active citizens if they are aware of their rights and responsibilities from a young age and this is reinforced throughout their school life. Inverclyde have achieved a number of firsts in Scotland in implementing the RRSA. Of the five schools within Inverclyde to have gained the RRSA, St Columba’s High School is the first secondary in Scotland to have achieved Level 1 status and Glenburn School, an additional support needs (ASN) school for primary and secondary aged pupils, is to our knowledge the only ASN school in Britain to have achieved Advanced Level 2 status.
