Unicef UK Rights Respecting School Silver Award!

Law Primary School and North Berwick Nursery aims to be a school where children’s rights are at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to their full potential. As part of this plan we are working towards our silver award recognition as a ‘Rights Respecting School’, an award given to schools on behalf of Unicef UK.

Unicef is the world’s leading organisation working for children and young people and their rights. In 1989, governments across the world agreed that all children have the same rights by adopting the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). These rights are based on what a child needs to survive, grow, participate and fulfil their potential.

Law Primary School and North Berwick Nursery pupils will learn about their rights by putting them into practice every day. A Rights Respecting School models rights and respect in all its relationships.

We really hope that you will be able to support our school on our journey towards our silver award becoming a Unicef UK Rights Respecting School. It would be great if you could spend a few minutes finding out a bit more about the Convention on the Rights of the Child by visiting unicef.org.uk/crc.

ELC Parental Engagement Strategy 2017 evaluation survey

East Lothian Council is seeking responses to help them to evaluate the impact of the six strands of the strategy for schools, parent council members and the wider parent forum. The full Strategy document is available at https://www.eastlothian.gov.uk/downloads/download/12712/parental_engagement_strategy

This survey http://links.edubuzz.org/pestrategysurveyforparents is for completion by the Parent Forum and I would encourage you to complete it to give your views.

The survey will be open for completion until Friday 22nd February, 2019. Parents only need to complete one survey if they have multiple children at school, but will need to complete more than one survey for children at different schools. The survey results will be collated on a school basis which will be shared with the HT and Chair of the Parent Council to support any actions arising shortly after the closure of the surveys.
