On 17th June, 20 of our lovely Year 5 children were trained by the Diana Awards to become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.
The Diana Awards Anti-Bullying Ambassador programme sees trainers working with pupils to change the attitude surrounding bullying. The programme has a strong peer to peer focus, with trainers giving pupils the skills and confidence to become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors to tackle bullying in their school long after the training has finished. The Diana Awards 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 started an action plan of how to approach bullying issues that may arise in their school and committed to their roles as Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.
The Diana Award by the charity was founded as a legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales' belief that young people have the power to change the world for the better. Its mission is to foster, develop and inspire positive change in the lives of children.

Today our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors received their certificates and badges for completing the training and discussed ideas for their future campaigns.
