PUPIL leaders at Witton Middle School are celebrating after achieving their Anti-Bullying Ambassador awards.
A total of 20 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 able to lead campaigns, assemblies and schemes.
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 she was extremely proud the school’s pupils ensured everyone felt safe and spoke out to stop bullying quickly.
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.
The award, an organisation set up in memory of Princess Diana, honours young people who work to improve the lives of others.
The new anti-bullying team will now work towards earning Diana Award badges for their work in the school and the community.
