The Rights Respecting Schools Award puts children’s rights at the heart of schools in the UK. The Award recognises a schools’s achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child into practice within the school and beyond.

With high levels of staff absence and very limited availability of supply cover, we only just managed to keep the school open last week for all year groups. This week the situation has deteriorated slightly and so we need to take steps to protect learning and teaching as best we can. What has been decided is that if we ask one year group to remain at home each day, the teachers who would usually be teaching them can cover other classes for absent colleagues. Therefore please be aware of the following:
- Wednesday 23rd March- S3 pupils should remain at home
- Thursday 24th March- S2 pupils should remain at home
- Friday 25th March- S1 pupils should remain at home.
It is too early to speculate about next week but I will issue a further update on Friday via a parental email and website post.

Parents and carers can learn more about Foundation, Modern and Graduate Apprenticeships on a free webinar later this month. Careers Advisers from Skills Development Scotland will talk about the different apprenticeships that are available and how work-based learning can open the door to a wide range of careers. They will also be on hand to answer any questions that you may have about your young persons career development. Parents and carers can register for the session below.
LGBTQ+ History Month is held in February to coincide with the 2003 abolition of Section 28. Section 28 of the Local Government Act, introduced by Margaret Thatcher, stated that local authorities were not allowed to ‘intentionally promote homosexuality.’
According to the Human Dignity Trust, 71 jurisdictions worldwide criminalise same-sex relationships. The purpose behind LGBTQ+ History Month is to recognise the struggle of those that fought for the movement whilst celebrating their contributions.
Most importantly, however, LGBTQ+ History Month reminds us of those who live without the rights we take for granted. These slides contain a few historical figures to learn more about this month.
