George Heriot's is a Rights Respecting School, and children’s rights are at the very heart of our ethos.

We aim to raise awareness about the UNCRC and we strive to help and support children who may not get the same rights and freedoms we do. We want children to feel valued, and to understand that they can make valuable contributions to society as global citizens. We have active staff and pupil led steering groups. They inspire positive change with regard to school policies and provide practical support and resources, thus ensuring the UNCRC is fully embedded within our school. We also promote the UNCRC in the wider community through our S6 voluntary programme and partnership work with other schools
