Anti-Bullying AmbassadorsAnti-Bullying Ambassadors from Year Five and Six work in collaboration with the Peer Mediators. The aim of the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors is to raise awareness of the different types of bullying and provide support to all pupils.
In early 2018 we were awarded the Anti-Bullying School award. Miss Latter worked extremely hard, alongside staff and children in the school, to evidence how we ensure bullying is non-existent in our school. We received a lovely letter alongside the award which highlighted particular strengths of our portfolio:
"We were particularly impressed with the following aspects of your evidence:
- The extent to which the school promotes mutual respect between all members of the school community and tolerance of different cultures, faiths and beliefs within the school and wider world.
- The clear policy and guidance for staff, pupils and parents about bullying, behaviour and keeping safe online including the publication of a range of information and policies that are easily accessible to all on the school website.
- The family ethos of the school and its focus on positive behaviour and praise for everyday good behaviour and attitude.
- The range of opportunities that enable pupils to model good behaviour and kindness to their peers. in particular the anti-bullying ambassador and digital ambassador initiatives which are pupil led.
- Pupils have an understanding of how to prevent bullying and how to act in a range of situations."
The programme also aims to:
- Improve communication skills
- Increase self-esteem and confidence
- Encourage and develop peer relationships
- Increase ability to understand and empathise with others
- Develop decision making skills
- Develop conflict resolution skills
- Instill a sense of responsibility
- Develop a sense of community and belonging
24.02.17 - Anti-Bullying Assembly:
Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors set the whole school a challenge on Tuesday - they asked every child to draw around their hand and write on each finger a place in school where they felt safe of a person they felt safe talking to. These were then used to create a whole-school display in Oak.
25.04.17 - Anti-Bullying Assembly:
This morning the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors led their own assembly - their aim was to raise awareness of what bullying really is. During the assembly they set the whole school a 'HERO Challenge' to 'Help Everyone Respect Others' - they asked children to pay somebody a compliment during the school day and see if they get a smile in return!
