Does the happiest pupil in the UK go to your school?

Callum Carr - Natioanl Happiness Awards 2018 - Happiest Pupil Award

Since the beginning of the National Happiness Awards, one of our favourite categories has always been Happiest Pupil, won in 2017 by Callum Carr from St Matthews Primary School in Luton.

Callum was nominated by teachers from St Matthew’s for his 'bright, cheerful and happy outlook on life, despite his having to manage some difficult health problems.'

He picked up his award at a gala evening at CIPD in London. Media coverage of Callum's win led to an appearance on BBC Three Counties Radio studios where Calum and his mum met Nick Coffer, presenter of the afternoon programme.

 

Watch Callum receive his Happiest Pupil award at CIPD in London


Who is the Callum in your school? Some pupils perform well in exams, and others may achieve in sports, but how do we reward pupils who also make a positive impact on the happiness wellbeing and positive learning culture of a school?

Who are the pupils in your school who defy the odds, and despite setbacks and problems, refuse to give in? How do we acknowledge and reward things that aren't traditionally measured and tested and acknowledge their contribution to school life?

It starts with a nomination to the National Happiness Awards.

As part of your nomination, our panel of expert judges looks for evidence of how they contribute to the overall happiness and wellbeing of their school. How they inspire, engage and add to its happiness, wellbeing, and positive mental health, inside and outside of the classroom.

If you think your school has the happiest pupil in the UK, fill in the online nomination form before 19th October 2018. Nominations can be made by teachers, fellow pupils, support workers or even an entire class.

There are two other awards in the education category: Happiest School and Happiest School Person. Nominations close soon, so nominate today.

Winners and runners-up will receive their awards at a gala ceremony on Friday 16th November at Media City in Manchester.
