Explore this approach
This professional learning resource helps improve practitioners' knowledge, understanding and application of the UNCRC. It:
- explores the UNCRC articles;
- looks at the evolution of children’s rights across the world;
- links the UNCRC articles to the Scottish education context and provides tools to support self-evaluation and improvement;
- provides helpful case studies to demonstrate practice in this area.
How to use this self-evaluation approach to improve practice
This self-evaluation approach could be used to provide professional learning to practitioners around the UNCRC and to help them reflect on how they are taking forward children’s rights within their school context. It also links well to How Good is Our School? (fourth edition).
Some key improvement questions include:
- How well do we understand the UNCRC and how the articles within it relate to the practice in our school?
- How well do we understand and demonstrate our role as duty bearers of children’s rights?
- To what extent do we make links between the UNCRC and our culture, values and ethos; skills and activities; curricular programmes and targeted support?
