This year Banchory Academy has been working towards recognition as a Rights Respecting School, working with UNICEF to educate pupils and staff on children's rights and how to put them into practice every day.
And we are very happy to announce we have just been awarded our Bronze Badge, and have already started working towards our silver.
A Right's Respecting School doesn't just benefit the school, it makes a positive impact on the whole community.
*Children are healthier and happier
*Children feel safe
*Children have better relationships
*Children become active and involved in school life and the wider world.
“At Banchory Academy, we aim to promote positive mental health for our staff and students. We pursue this aim using universal, whole school approaches as well as specialised, targeted approaches and interventions.”
