We are becoming a Unicef UK Rights Respecting School!

Rathen School are delighted to be taking part in Scotland’s Digital Learning Week from the 13-17th May 2019.

National Digital Learning Week is led by Education Scotland to give pupils and practitioners the opportunity to share best practice and enhance their skills in digital learning and teaching. Throughout the week classes in Rathen school will be taking part in challenges across a range of curriculum areas.

We are also looking forward to a visit from Schools Liaison Officer PC Mike Taylor who will be visiting each class to discuss online safety.

Our ‘Right of the Month’ for May is Article 17 :

I have the right to get information in lots of ways, so long as it’s safe.

Article 17 of the UNCRC says children and young people should be able to access information, particularly from the media. They should be able to get information from many places— from their country and beyond.

This Article applies to all kinds of media, including:

  • print media― such as newspapers or magazines
  • electronic media― such as websites
  • audiovisual media― such as radio and television programmes.

Article 17 will be our focus during DLW and this may be a good opportunity to discuss how to keep your young person safe at home in regards to the internet/media.
