Rights Respecting Schools Weekly reminder

Our final focus for the week is Article 13 Having the freedom to express opinions and access information. Activities which include discussion points and short videos are available in Pupil Launchpad/Homeroom Activities. 

Thank you for taking the time to discuss these important issues and have a well deserved rest in the summer holidays.

Newbattle’s Senior Prefect Team 2021/22

 If you are interested in becoming a prefect, house captain/depute captain or school captain/depute captain then we are now accepting video applications for these roles. Some of you will have already expressed an interest in this via your PSE Aim Higher Academy lesson and this has been noted. All you now need to do is make a short video explaining why we should select you for one of these roles. Please note that even if you haven’t already expressed an interest, you can still submit a video application. The key things we are looking for are:

  •         Why you ?
  •         What changes would you make to the school ?
  •         What qualities could you bring to these roles ?
  •         Anything else you think is relevant!

The deadline for applications is the end of the school day on Thursday 17th June. Once you have made your video, please upload to google drive and share with Mrs Bruce (mcbrucee76). Alternatively, email it directly to Mrs Bruce (
