Anti Bullying Ambassadors

Our Year 5 & 6 children are trained to be Anti-Bullying Ambassadors through the Diana Award programme:

The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Programme raises awareness of bullying behaviour and supports schools and young people to tackle it across the UK and beyond. Our Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme has a strong peer-to-peer focus, with our facilitators giving young people the skills and confidence to become Ambassadors to tackle bullying in their schools long after the training has finished. Our anti-bullying work is recognised as world-class thanks to this sustainable and youth-led approach.

Every year, 10 children in Year 5 apply to become Anti Bullying Ambassadors at Timbercroft. The successful children are then trained by the Diana Award programme: The training's focus is to 'Equip students and staff with the tools needed to tackle bullying behaviour and create a safer, kinder school community'.

Our Anti Bullying Ambassadors in Year 5 & 6 help the school promote Anti Bullying week in November, lead assemblies, meet regularly each half term with a member of school staff and help monitor and support children in the playground.
