Anti-Bullying Ambassadors complete accredited training.
Pupil leaders from Witton Middle School have successfully achieved their Anti-Bullying Ambassador awards.
Twenty children received specialist training from The Diana Award and are now qualified to lead in promoting awareness of bullying behaviours and encouraging kindness across the school. The children learned all about what different types of bullying behaviours there can be, and how to be an 'upstander' against bullying behaviours. They are now poised to lead campaigns, assemblies and initiatives. Iaean, aged 10, said "I chose to be an ambassador because I want an active role in the school community. I feel passionate about helping others."
Headteacher, Suzie Bourne said "We have worked hard to raise awareness of bullying behaviours and by training such a great team of Anti-Bullying Ambassadors we can send a very clear message throughout our whole school community that bullying behaviour or unkindness towards others with not be tolerated. I am extremely proud that our pupils make sure that everyone feels safe and speak out to stop bullying quickly."
The Diana Award, an organisation set up in memory of Princess Diana, honours young people who work to improve the lives of others and is the most prestigious accolade a young person can receive for their social action or humanitarian work. The new anti-Bullying team will now work toward earning Diana Award badges for their work in the school and the community.
