rights respecting logoRights Respecting School Award (RRSA) – Ross High School 2014/15

If we RESPECT others RIGHTS then we are LEARNING how to be RESPONSIBLE citizens.

Ross Highs is, for the first time, setting out on an adventure in partnership with UNICEF (Link) to aim to achieve the RRSA Level 1 Award by June 2015. Please join us and join in!

This is an ambitious goal for the whole school learning community and it is a serious challenge with great benefits for all.

To achieve the RRSA we need your support, the support of pupils, parents and ALL the staff at RHS from the Janitors, cleaners, canteen and office staff through the entire staff team to key members of our local community.

The RRSA is presented to a school that first of all demonstrates the recognition of commitment that the school is ready to include the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) in it’s ethos, learning and teaching. Once this is secure the school then progresses to Level 1 after we have opened ourselves up to an audit from an RRSA Assessor.

Ross High School aims to become a RRSA Level 1 by June 2015. Our goal is to make Ross High a Rights Respecting School through creating a culture that uses Rights Respecting and Restorative practice supported by the psychology of a Growth Mindset approach to Learning & Teaching.

Please join us and join in! Speak to any Rights Ambassador from the pupil Focus Group or Mr.McCallum or Mr. Munro from our Strategic Steering Group as soon as possible and get involved!
