See the impact
No Child Left Behind works with partners to deliver training and education opportunities. NCLB have supported various training events reaching children in schools and adults who live and work in Cheltenham.
We think training people is important to help people better understand how to support others and to feel more confident in themselves. Training opportunities will be highlighted through our events page so keep an eye out.
We recognise that free, fun events can help build positive relationships, help share learning and raise awareness of some big issues.
This is why we have held a number of events aimed at children, families and professionals through 2019 and have many more planned for 2020 and beyond.
We will keep you posted about upcoming events.
NCLB aims to raise awareness of issues affecting our children, such as criminal exploitation, period poverty or healthy eating.
Through our social media we will aim to link up with big national campaigns as well as supporting local campaigns about issues affecting our communities.
Year of action
Cheltenham partners committed to a year of action in 2019, called No Child Left Behind.
Our aims were:
- to raise awareness
- to begin to close the gap, and
- to work together to make long term change
Unstoppable is a partnership project funded by Gloucestershire County Council whose aim is to deliver free sanitary products to anyone in Cheltenham who needs them.
It was launched during the #ConfidentGirls month of the year of action.
Free sanitary products
Access free tampons, pads, towels and menstrual cups across Cheltenham in places that are easy to access, so you can just walk in and take what you need.
NCLB Community Agreement
The NCLB Community Agreement launched in September 2020, bringing together schools, statutory services, charities and private sector organisations to implement a collective ethos, a way of working day-to-day, that is rooted in kindness and understanding.
The agreement sets out our commitment to families across out town that we will work WITH them, will work in a way that recognises their experiences and that puts compassion at the heart of our practice.

Kindness at Christmas
Throughout December 2020 NCLB and Cheltenham’s iconic Queen’s Hotel asked school children across our town to think about ‘Kindness at Christmas’.
We ran a competition with 13 NCLB Community Partner schools, asking children to draw a picture of all the ways to express kindness over the festive period. Over 500 children took part, and staff at the Queen’s selected their favourites for a very special prize.
24 winners had their pictures revealed from behind the doors of a 3-storey advent calendar projected onto the side of the regency building, one for each day of advent.
The children and their families were then invited to celebrate with afternoon tea at the hotel, a really magical experience.
