Primary School Accreditation Programme FAQs


What is the Primary School Accreditation Programme?

The aim of the schools accreditation programme is to encourage schools to participate in Ceilidh and Scottish Country Dancing using the 'Jigs and Reels' pack. Schools will be rewarded with certificates at Bronze, Silver and Gold levels depending on the level of commitment, and the pupils will receive a pin badge at the appropriate level.  Hopefully, schools will then get their children to participate in the RSCDS Medal Tests and dance at local festivals.
