A group of children from Y3-Y6 attended anti-bullying training. After receiving their training, they became 'Anti-Bullying Ambassadors' for our school. In their role, they help educate their peers on bullying; lead on anti-bullying campaigns; promote a culture which celebrates and respects difference; and helps keep their peers safe both online and offline. They are supported by Miss Halsey and Mrs Curzon who have received staff training to support our ambassadors in their work.
The first badge we earned was the wellbeing badge. For this badge, we have:
- created a lunchtime support group
- created a rota of peer buddies
- wrote our own child friendly anti-bullying policy
- planned and led a whole school ‘Feel Good Friday’
- planned some well-being days with animal handling
- promoted achievements in and out of school through achievement collective worship
- led lots of charity work
- and much more....

This is what they said about our application: 'We’ve reviewed your evidence and we were overwhelmed with how much thought and effort you’ve put into your anti-bullying initiatives. It seems like all of the activities have had a great impact on the students in your school and we really like that you use such creative ideas to support your campaign. We loved how you engaged parents and the whole school community in your message, and it is clear you ran fun but also informative campaigns. Thank you so much for sharing all this evidence. We’ve really loved looking over it all.'
The third badge we have worked towards is the respect badge.
For this, we showed:
- our commitment to tackling sexual bullying, by attending our Respect Training.
- our successful whole school assemblies.
- our enthusiasm for celebrating diversity, by electing a ‘Diversity Champion’
- our dedication to discussing different bullying topics throughout the school.
- our passion for diversifying our library to be encompassing of the protected characteristics.
