We are thrilled to announce that the winner of our national Kind School Award for 2024 is Underbank Primary School! 🏆💖

This incredible recognition celebrates the school’s outstanding efforts in fostering a culture of kindness and helping everyone feel valued and supported.

The school has introduced a range of initiatives to encourage self-kindness, kindness to others and kindness to the planet. And their kindness extends beyond the school gates, with charitable work in their local community.

Underbank Primary School was selected for the Kind School Award by a distinguished panel of judges, including Prof. Robin Banerjee, Dr Jeremy Hannay, Vincent Brittain and Beth McKenna.

The judges said kindness was clearly woven into the fabric of the school community and they were impressed by the many different ways the school nurtured kindness. They were also so impressed with the fantastic array of schools in the shortlist, saying there was a ‘truly inspiring ethos of kindness.’

As well as the honour of being crowned as our ‘Kind School’ for 2024, Underbank Primary School will also receive a Kindness Table for their playground, donated by the kind people at NBB Recycled Furniture, a kind book bundle for their school library, and subscriptions to The Week Junior and The Happy Newspaper.

We will be announcing the runners-up for the Kind School Award and our other Award winners over the coming weeks, so stay tuned!

A big thank you to everyone who submitted a nomination. It has been absolutely incredible to read about all the kindness happening in schools all over the country, and the judges did not have an easy task!  Everyone nominated will receive a certificate congratulating them on their efforts.
