We have registered our school for the Rights Respecting School Award which has been developed by UNICEF. The Award has been developed to help everyone in schools behave responsibly by respecting each others rights.
190 of the world's 195 countries have promised to recognise the rights of children.

In a similar way to your class representatives going along to the Pupil Council to represent you, we have MPs who go to the government meetings to represent all the people in Orkney. Alistair Carmichael does this job in London for Orkney and Shetland. He will be coming into school with some of the people who work for UNICEF to see what we do at Glaitness to try our best to be a Rights Respecting School.
