Rights Respecting Schools
We are pleased to announce that Torridon Primary School has been awarded the UNICEF Bronze: Rights Committed Award.
A Rights Respecting School is a community where children’s rights are learned, taught, practiced, respected, protected and promoted.
At Torridon Primary School we aim to have the children’s rights at the heart of our ethos and culture, to improve well-being and to develop every child’s talents and abilities to reach their full potential. We have successfully achieved the Bronze Award: Rights Committed, we are now working towards achieving Silver: Rights Aware.

What is the Rights Respecting Schools Award?
The Unicef UK Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) supports schools across the UK to embed children’s human rights in their ethos and culture.
The award recognises achievement in putting the UN Convention on the Right of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of a school’s practice to improve well-being and help all children realise their potential.
The award is based on principles of equality, dignity, respect, non-discrimination and participation.
The initiative started in 2006 and schools involved in the Award have reported a positive impact on relationships and well-being, leading to better learning and behaviour, improved academic standards and less bullying.
