Unicef – Rights Respecting Schools

Unicef works with schools in the UK to create safe and inspiring places to learn where children are respected, their talents nurtured and they are able to thrive.  At Wirral Grammar School for Boys we seek to embed these values in daily school life and give our pupils the best chance to lead happy, healthy lives and to be responsible, active citizens.  We are currently working towards the Rights Respecting Schools Award in putting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child into practice within the school and beyond.

Much of what you read within this Parent Handbook is reflected within the Unicef principles: our approach to pupil participation and engagement through positive reward; the emphasis placed on participation in House events; countless leadership opportunities whether in relation to House, enterprise, sport or music; participation through School and House Councils; directly leading on Peer Support and Anti-Bullying measures and through engagement in the democratic process through House Captain and Mock National Elections.
