For six years the school’s group has aimed to improve life at school and home for children. The programme cuts down on bullying by teaching children how to co-operate, listen and mediate. Twelve year five pupils are trained each year and then take part in a rota when they reach year six.

The Diana Award was established in 1999 as a lasting legacy to the Princess of Wales’ belief that young people have the power to change the world.
