On Wednesday the 19th of September 14 children attended training to become school anti-bullying ambassadors run by the Diana Awards. They were accompanied by Mr Riordan, Miss Allen and Mrs Jones, our safeguarding governor.
During the day children learned about the definition of bullying, the different types of bullying and strategies they can promote back in school to raise awareness and create an effective school anti-bullying culture. They also focussed on e-safety, including how to support other childen and keep adults informed to ensure children and young people are not at risk when on line.
The day was a huge success and we were very proud that one of our Year 4 girls was given a special award for her contribution to the training day which included secondary, special and primary schools from across the South West.
Our ambassadors will now begin working with senior leaders to plan out a year of action which will include reviewing our anti-bullying policy and procedures, training for staff, ambassador led assemblies, information campaigns and some whole school events.
This promises to be a very busy and very exciting year ahead for our new ambassadors and we look forward to seeing the impact of their work in our school.
