ICHS Vision










Rights Respecting School Award




We are very excited to announce that Inveralmond CHS has just begun its journey through the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools Award Scheme.

The purpose of the scheme is to recognise the achievement of schools that place children’s rights ‘at the heart of a school’s planning, policies, practice and ethos’. While it will take around 24 months for us to complete our journey to level one of the RRSA, we are very proud to be putting our belief in children’s rights at the centre of everything we do at Inveralmond.

We will enjoy keeping you informed about our progress through the RRSA but if you have any questions or ideas please contact us at inveralmond.chs@wled.org.uk

Furthermore, if you would like to read more about the scheme, please go to: R.R.S.A


Film Shoot

A group of Inveralmond students took part in a professional film shoot recently with local film director, Graeme O’Hara. The purpose of the video is to introduce our learning community to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Rights Respecting School Award. The video has attracted a lot of attention from other schools in West Lothian as well as from UNICEF themselves. We think it does the job very nicely!

R.R.S.A. Achievement

We are very pleased to announce that Inveralmond CHS has now achieved our Recognition of Commitment status from UNICEF. This means that we have provided enough evidence to show that as a learning community we are committed to placing children’s rights at the heart of our policies, practices and relationships.

We are very excited about putting all our planning into action next session. Well done and thank you to everyone who has been involved so far!

Congratulations to Nathan Reis from 3B1!

The quality of all submissions was high but Nathan’s design for Inveralmond’s positive behaviour charter has been selected and will be appearing very soon across the school.

We feel that Nathan’s idea encapsulates everything that we want to promote about children’s rights and the responsibility that staff and pupils alike have in ensuring that they are protected.

This marks a very important step along our Rights Respecting School journey. Well done Nathan and thank you to Mr Collin and the CDT department for letting this experience happen.


R.R.S.A. Award

We are delighted to announce that Inveralmond has been awarded Level One of the Rights Respecting School Award.

This means that UNICEF recognise our school as an organisation that places children’s rights at the heart of everything we do.

The assessors were particularly impressed with our learning and teaching, our Positive Behaviour Charters, the equality that we promote in school and the work that we do as global citizens.

A massive well done to everyone involved, especially to the pupil steering group!
