School Charter

As a Rights Respecting School we have developed a school charter based on the UN convention on the Rights of the Child. This has been revised with the children and explained to them so they understand their rights and responsibilities to ensure that Laurieston School is a safe and happy place for everyone to work and learn.

At Laurieston Primary School children, parents and staff work co-operatively to enhance learning experiences in line with our agreed charter.
