Young people, from the Senior Department, worked together and acquired vital skills to enable them to change the attitudes and behaviours of bullying in their school by building their skills and confidence to address different situations, both online and off.
The Diana Award’s Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme which is available to schools across the UK, sees trainers working with students and other young people to change the attitude surrounding bullying. The programme has a strong peer-to-peer focus, with trainers giving young people the skills and confidence to become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors to 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.
The training looked at bullying in different situations including face-to-face and online. At the end of the day, pupils made an action plan of how to approach bullying issues that may arise in their schools and committed to their roles as Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. Congratulations to Miles Spellacy, Dominic Dodd, Jude Anders, Sahar Ali, Sophie Wilkinson, Charlotte Higginson, Ella Raw and Nicole Healey on receiving this on behalf of the Princess Diana Award. The students have now started to begin their campaign, approaching issues on bullying behaviour and mental health.
