School proud of its anti-bullying ambassadors

Posted onPosted on 6th May

Anti-Bullying Ambassadors at Abbey Hill Primary and Nursery School, Kirkby, have been congratulated for gaining their Well Being badge through the Diana Award.

After receiving training through the charity last year, the team — Logan Bettison, Alfie Coombes, Taylor Cox, William Steele, Abby Simpson, Khloe Grimsley, Ellie Carroll, Mide Oladimeji and Poppy-Mae Pitchfork — have been working hard to implement new ideas and activities to help their fellow pupils feel good about themselves and encourage them to show acts of kindness towards each other.

Together they wrote an action plan, then presented their ideas to the governing body and to the whole school staff. They did an excellent job of delivering their ideas with enthusiasm and confidence.

As well as organising activities during anti-bullying week, the children hold regular positive message stone hunts and have introduced a Positive Post-it area in each class.

Following on from their success, the team will be looking to earn their Respect badge next — there are four badges in total.

Teaching assistant Carole Deakin, the school’s anti-bullying Lead, was thrilled to achieve this first badge. She said: “We are so proud of our ambassadors. They show great enthusiasm and dedication to their role.”
