This prestigious award is open to both primary and secondary schools. It is the only such honour that Diabetes UK offers and is a fantastic way to demonstrate the great care provided to children with diabetes in school.
We celebrate the schools that work with parents and healthcare professionals to ensure children with diabetes have as easy an experience at school as possible.

It only takes a few minutes to nominate. If your school is successful they can join over 200 other schools that have been awarded this honour when the awards were first run, and the 81 schools who have received the award since October 2018. We're delighted to add the list of successful schools for 2019 towards the bottom of the page.

What happens after I've made a nomination?
Once the nomination phase closes, we will contact the school informing them of their nomination. We'll then invite them to apply for the award.
We won't be collecting personal data, names or details of any children who attend the school.
However, we will ask you to provide data about the school. We'll only use this data for the purposes of the award
