As many people do at the beginning of a New Year we reflect and think about what we would like to do to improve for the coming year.
This year following on from our professional learning we have streamlined our approach to supporting positive behaviour. As a result we have introduced ‘The Campie Way.’ This brings together all the different aspects of our expectations for developing a positive ethos including our vision and values into a single page guide.
During the week beginning the 1st of April 2019 a local authority team visited our school to undertake a focused school review. We are delighted that we are now able to share the outcome of the visit.
In the report there are positives which a have been highlighted and next steps and aspects for improvement which have been identified. In conjunction with our own ongoing self-evaluation we have used the review recommendations to inform our School Improvement Plan for 2019/2020.
We look forward to the whole school community working together to bring about the improvements identified.
Progressing Children’s Rights in Scotland – An Action Plan 2018-21: Consultation
On 2 July, the SG published the consultation on Progressing Children’s Rights in Scotland – An Action Plan 2018-21.
The link below will take you to a shortened version of that consultation, designed for children and young people.
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child – what is it?
The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) is an international treaty that sets out the rights that all children and young people under the age of 18 have.
What are Rights?
Rights are about making sure people are treated well and get a fair deal. They set out the sorts of things that must be put in place for this to happen. Everybody has rights. Children’s rights are human rights. The rights set out in the UNCRC include, for example, the right of children and young people to an education, good quality health care, to be protected from being hurt or badly treated and the right to relax and play.
