Anti-Bullying Ambassador Training

Recently, some of our Juniper and Willow pupils have participated in an exciting new project at Stanford! They have begun their Anti-Bullying Ambassador training - a marvellous project delivered by The Diana Award. They spent the day with Clio, a representative from The Diana Award, who worked with the children to help them understand how they can spread the message of helping and supporting one another, abolishing bullying and feeling safe and happy at school and online.

Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors will help to train other children and each month will be working with Mrs Jones, Learning Mentor, to continue embedding their training across the school.

For more information, please visit diana-award.org.uk/anti-bullying

Keep checking our class and SMSC blogs for upcoming exciting events with this project!
