Anti-Bullying Diana Award Ambassadors

At North Leamington School we are committed to providing a friendly, caring and safe environment for all our students. Through dedicated tutor time sessions and awareness-raising initiatives, especially during Anti-Bullying Week, students know that we promote a culture that celebrates and tolerates difference.

We are therefore delighted to introduce our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors, as part of the Diana Award Anti-Bullying Programme. The Programme offers training for students who want to help make a positive change to the attitude surrounding bullying, helping young people now and in their future lives. It therefore has a strong peer-to-peer focus, providing students with the skills and confidence to become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors and tackle bullying in their schools long after the training has finished. The Diana Award’s anti-bullying work is recognised as world-class thanks to this sustainable approach.

                   

Lily, Eshya, Katie, Ella-Mae, Umar, Arush, Daniel, Claire, Archie and Zarah began their year-long journey on the Programme with an offsite training day where, through a series of engaging group activities and discussions, they learnt the skills needed to undertake this important role and are now trained ambassadors.

Their message to fellow students is clear: bullying is not acceptable. Through a school-wide communications campaign, they are helping educate their peers on bullying behaviour and are offering support to students who feel they need it. They have set up a drop-in centre two breaktimes each week, where students can go if they feel they need to talk about face-to-face or online bullying, or issues around it they feel affect them.

As upstanders against bullying behaviour, our ambassadors believe they can change things for the better and this supportive initiative is an important part of making this happen. In addition to the support sessions, the group is planning a series of events to engage with students, so the anti-bullying message and their aim remain clear all year-round. We will keep you updated!
