UNICEF UK's Rights Respecting School Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the Convention at the heart of a school's ethos.

The RRSA standards cover four key areas:

  • Leading and managing a rights-respecting school;
  • Teaching and learning about the Convention;
  • Creating and maintaining a rights-respecting ethos;
  • Empowering children and young people to become active citizens and learners.

The Award scheme is an effective way of inspiring and supporting schools who want to provide children, young people and the wider school community with a rights-respecting guide to living. It also provides a framework to connect a range of school initiatives which are intended to promote the rights of children and young people.

West Calder High School is currently a Bronze Award Rights Respecting School.
