Getting It Right For Every Child (GIRFEC) Consultation
In week 3 Ruby visited the session to consult the children about a review of an important Scottish Government policy that everyone working with children will read – in schools, social work, healthcare and everything else children get up to.
We were talking about the values and principles of this policy “Getting It Right For Every Child”.
So we were asking, what do children need to grow up happy, healthy, safe, loved and respected?
The Wednesday Crew came up with a recipe to share with the policy makers, who compared it with the values and principles to see if they’d captured everything the children thought was important!
- Fresh air
- A grown up (dad, mum, carer)
- painting & art
- a puppy, pets
- flowers, the sun, nature,
- a teacher that listens, teaches, a thank you to the teacher,
Felicia said when we were coming up with the recipe she felt
“Happy, loved & cared”
