Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Training

On Thursday 28th November The Diana Award invited ten of our Year 7 Park High students to take part in their ‘Anti Bullying Ambassador training day’. The training day was held at the Alec Reed Academy in Northolt where up to 200 students and school staff from all over London and surrounding areas came together to be trained as Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. The Anti-Bullying Ambassador training is aimed at students aged between 12-18. 

On the day our students received basic training looking at the skills needed to support others and stay safe. The training covered, understanding the issue of bullying, facts about bulling, the definition and the effects of bullying. Students were given practical ideas, top tips and explored scenarios on bullying in groups. They were trained in online safety and approaches to staying safe online and how to educate their peers. Students networked with other passionate young people, exchanged ideas and shared good practices. They viewed Video examples from other schools that the Diana Award currently work with. Finally students were asked to put together an Action plan,  set targets and aims for their Anti-Bullying work to take back to school. This training will help our Year 7s kick start and develop our schools Anti-Bullying work and allows our students to creatively explore and understand the topic of bullying.

Our students left feeling inspired, full of fantastic ideas and given the tools they needed to tackle bullying head on! In their role as Anti Bullying Ambassadors they will help educate their peers on bullying, lead on anti-bullying campaigns, promote a culture which celebrates and tolerates difference and help keep themselves and their peers safe both online and offline. The students also received a training booklet from the day, an Anti-Bullying Ambassador badge, wristband and a certificate for attending the training.  The Diana Award provides ongoing support for our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors and a 3 month follow-up survey to assess the ongoing impact of their training on bullying in schools.

The Anti-Bullying Ambassador programme was set up in 2011,  as part of the charity the Diana Award. In 2013 the programme received funding from the Department for Education. The programme offers resources and training to schools and youth organisations in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland. After the Diana Award 'Anti Bullying Ambassador training' Schools have reported an increase in attendance, attainment, improved behaviour and overall reduction in bullying. Many of the schools they have worked with have also received high Ofsted ratings as a result of their work with them and continued action against bullying. There is a short video featuring staff and students explaining the impact of the programme and their anti-bullying work can be found here: http://www.antibullyingpro.com/showcase
