Spilt into digestable sections, this is a  resource for all adults in school. ‘What is the UNCRC’ is an overview of the UNCRC, delving into incorporation in Scotland and your role as a duty bearer.

 

 

The Wee Book of Promises

Designed as a small gatefold booklet, the Children’s Parliament’s Wee Book of Promises communicates the UNCRC using accessible language. The booklet is used in all of Children’s Parliament’s work and Members of Children’s Parliament receive a copy when they participate in our projects and consultations.


The booklet includes promises from adults to children, to make sure children have the basic things that they need to thrive and flourish. 


Check-in guidance

In this resource we will be looking at activities you can do with children to find solutions that can reduce or remove shouting from the school day.

This resource is designed for pupils in P4-7. It works best when there is plenty of room for children to move around and interact with each other and the space.

Dignity Self-Assesment Tool

This is a simple self-assessment tool that can be used with both adults and children in school to help you discover your strengths and areas that may need a bit more support when it comes to rights-based practice.

The tool involves two questionnaires, one for adults and one for children. It will guide you through how to carry out the questionnaires, how to analyse your results and what your next steps could be as a result.
