Torphins School A Rights Respecting School
Our Vision Statement
We are committed to providing a range of flexible pathways and progression routes to meet the needs of all our learners, allowing our children to progress at different rates and in different ways at a good pace appropriate to their prior learning in line with the highest aspirations for all.
We aim to place the values and principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) at the heart of our school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos and to develop every child’s personality, encourage talent and abilities to the full. We aim to encourage respect for human rights, as well as respect for their own and other cultures and the environment. We are committed to achieving the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA).
Our Rights Respecting School approaches informs all our school policies and programmes.
