Rights Respecting Schools Award

The Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) recognises achievement in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) at the heart of a school's planning, policies, practice and ethos. A rights-respecting school not only teaches about children's rights but also models rights and respect in all its relationships: between teachers / adults and pupils, between adults and between pupils.

Excellence in Integrated Education Award

The Excellence in Integrated Education Award (EIEA), awarded by the Northern Ireland Council for Integrated Education (NICIE) came about as a result of the question ‘What makes a good integrated school?’ The first two schools to be awarded the EIEA were in 2010 and since them there have been five other schools who have also achieved the award. The EIEA is an auditing tool which allows schools to look at where they are in terms of their integrated ethos and how the school is fulfilling the NICIE Statement of Principles.

Based on the results of the self-evaluation, schools may decide they are ready to apply for the award or that they need to address some gaps.

The audit tool is based upon the ‘Together Towards Improvement’ document from Education and Training Inspectorate (ETI) and linked  it to the School Development.
