Positive Relationships at School

This year, as well as sharing great school fundraising ideas, we’re calling on nurseries, primary schools and secondary schools across the UK to celebrate the power of positive relationships and the impact of these relationships in helping to support children and young people as they learn.

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
