UNCRC and Rights Respecting Schools
Last year as part of Anti-Bullying week we launched our awareness of the 'UN Convention on the Rights of the Child' campaign.
As well as analysing what they think we do well as a school, Moffat Academy's S6 Equalities Committee came up with some great suggestions to put into action. Well done to everyone involved.

Rights Respecting Schools Steering Group
Moffat Academy have achieved the first stage of the Rights Respecting Schools Award, Bronze: Rights Committed. In order to support the work moving forward we have established a Rights Respecting steering group which includes a variety of young people and staff. Pictures below are some of our members. Primary also have a steering group.
The role of the Steering Group is:
To take the lead in developing and delivering the school's plan to become rights respecting
To ensure that the whole school is aware of the RRSA
To provide a link between young people, teachers and the senior leadership team, parents and carers and the whole school community
To prepare for next stages of the RRSA, Silver: Rights Aware and Gold: Rights Respecting in the longer term.
The group will work with the whole school community to further the three RRSA Strands of the RRS:
Strand A: Teaching and learning about rights
Strand B: Teaching and learning through rights - ethos and relationships
Strand C: Teaching and learning for rights - participation, empowerment and action
