The focus of the day was on pupil leadership with pupils working together to explore responses to different scenarios such as bullying, being positive and what they could organise for a wellbeing week.

Lyn Harte, school liaison for Resilient Rutland, said: “Our hope is that this community of young leaders, with the help of their committed teachers, will continue to thrive for many years to come – importantly – putting young people at the heart of decision making and initiatives to support mental health and wellbeing.”

Another event is set to be held before the end of the academic year.
