Pupil-led wellbeing programme
Eikon Wellbeing Ambassadors is a pupil-led programme, designed to amplify student voice on whole school wellbeing. The aim is for Wellbeing Ambassadors to understand how to look after their own wellbeing and to learn how to promote and support wellbeing in their school.
We provide training and resources to develop Wellbeing Ambassadors, helping them to promote wellbeing through education, activities, events, and whole school communication.

The Priory School in Dorking
“The Wellbeing Ambassador Programme has been a fabulous resource for us, here at The Priory School. The training is very thorough, and the resources are invaluable. At our school, we have seen first-hand how prioritising the wellbeing of our students and staff has had a positive impact on our school community.
One major change we have made, following the training, is developing student voice. Through this we have recruited and trained Wellbeing Champions and Peer Mentors within our student community.
Wellbeing drop-in sessions are run daily for all year groups and Champions, Mentors and Wellbeing staff are there to help promote wellbeing and foster relationships with all students, some who struggle in social situations, and help build resilience and coping mechanisms through communication and sometimes simply playing games.
This has helped students to start their afternoon off on a calm and centered note, which has led to improved focus and productivity throughout the day.
Our Wellbeing Champions all proudly wear their WOW badges and have done cake sales and other activities to raise money for charity, all while raising awareness of the Five Ways to Wellbeing and Mental Health.”
