Children's Rights

In alignment with Curriculum for Excellence and GIRFEC, Article 29 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child states that,
“All children have the right to an education that develops their personality, talents and abilities to the full” and that
“All children’s education must encourage their respect for human rights, as well as respect for their parents, their own and other cultures and the environment.”
Steven Kidd from UNICEF joined with Sally Romilly and Clare Fulton of the Centre to deliver CPD opportunities to teachers and SMT personnel in Fife and Perth & Kinross.

UNICEF Launchpad was introduced and participants were given the opportunity to sign up and register to use this tool in their schools.  
Those in attendance at the workshops said:

Excellent practical introduction to global citizenship/rights
Lots of good ideas – the Launchpad will be used on return and shared with staff at INSET.
Good tips for resource access points
A good balance of listening, doing and discussion.

Available for use by schools, community groups and youth work services, the Launchpad helps children and young people learn about their rights and the rights of others throughout the world,
 then to enjoy their own rights and take action to help others to enjoy their rights too.

The Launchpad resource is currently free to all schools in Scotland so now would be a good time to sign up.
