Some students recently have been selected as Peer Ambassadors, and the Academy would like them to attend The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassador Training on Tuesday 17th July. The day will explore several topics…

  • Understanding the issue of bullying; facts, the definition and the effects of bullying
  • Practical ideas, top tips and explore scenarios on bullying in groups
  • Basic training looking at the skills needed to support others and stay safe
  • Online safety and approaches students and staff can take to staying safe online and educating their peers

  • Video examples of schools we currently work with
  • Action planning – helping students to think of a plan to take back to school and set targets and aims for theirAnti-Bullying work

We then hope that the students will form a team of Ambassadors who can support other students in the academy and advocate the anti-bullying work taking place across the academy.
