Impact of RRSA
On the School:
- RRSA is not an initiative, but instead provides an overarching set of values that improve the climate for learning and within which other initiatives can sit.
- A deeper and more cohesive way of working.
- Improved relationships with pupils and a reduced hierarchical divide between staff and pupils, due to a common rights-respecting language.
- Improved self-esteem and feelings of being valued and listened to.
- Increased levels of respect for each other, leading to improved relationships with other pupils and with staff.
- A sense of security as rights-respecting language and behaviour is used consistently throughout the school.
- Improved attainment and attendance, and a reduction in exclusions.
- An understanding and respect of religions, cultures, beliefs and abilities different to their own.
- A wider and deeper understanding of the world in which they live.
- Strengthened collaborative working.
- Increased consultative approach with other adults and pupils.
- A sense of ownership in developing an approach that meets the needs and aspirations of the school as a whole.
- A sense that the whole school is working towards a common goal, leading to feelings of empowerment for both staff and pupils.
- A platform is developed for parental engagement and discussion.
