Thank you very much to Gerry McMurtrie, Senior Professional Advisor for Rights Respecting Schools (Scotland) with UNICEF UK for all his advice, support, enthusiasm and encouragement.
Thank you also to Jen Drummond, City of Edinburgh Strategic Lead Unicef Rights Respecting Schools Award, and her team who visited school on Wednesday 11th May. They were so supportive in their verbal feedback on the day and also in subsequent detailed, helpful, written feedback received on Monday 31st May 2016, confirming our Level One Award. The team rightly acknowledged the tremendous support we receive from our wonderful Parent Council, many of whom participated in the inspection visit.
Well done all! Great Sciennes Team effort and achievement!
