Positive Relationships

This year, we’re calling on schools across the UK to celebrate the power of positive relationships!

We understand the importance of these relationships and the impact they have in helping to support children and young people throughout their school years.

Teachers, we’re celebrating YOU! Many children and young people experience some of their first positive relationships with teachers and mentors at school, and so we want to celebrate you.

We’re delighted to have England’s Lionesses, as well as Dame Jessica Ennis-Hill and Youtube sensation Harry Pinero supporting this very special campaign.

Each celebrity re-created their very own nostalgic school photo to celebrate the impact that schools can have on children and young people.

They also offered up special advice for school kids, as-well as reminiscing on their favourite school memories and those special teachers that helped get them to where they are today.


Positive Relationship Classroom Resources

We’ve worked closely with our friends at Twinkl to develop new classroom resources all about the importance of positive relationships.

The resource pack included a presentation and activity sheets to help your pupils explore the importance of positive relationships, and identify and celebrate the positive relationships in their lives.

Demi Stokes’ Positive Relationship

The England Lioness and Manchester City footballer went to visit her old PE teacher, Mr Williamson, to speak about the positive impact he had on her school life and in her journey to becoming a professional footballer.

While there she sat down with some of Mr Williamson’s current pupils and let them ask her anything!

“At school, a positive influence for me as a young person was my teacher, Mr Williamson. He was someone who I could always go to if anything was on my mind, he encouraged and believed in me, and always supported my interest in football"
