The Year 5s are our nominated 'Anti-bullying Ambassadors' and have been working towards the Diana Award. Each group has been completing a number of activities throughout school in order to earn a specific badge of recognition. Please see details of each group below, the children have been working very hard on this!
Community Action Group
We are anti-bullying ambassadors (the community action group) and our job is to make sure this school is bully-free and to spread awareness of how horrible bullying can be. Firstly, we did a whole-school assembly on this topic. More recently we have designed and sold badges at the Christmas Fair in order to promote awareness of anti-bullying in school and our community. We have invited our local MP, Ms Badenoch, to come in to meet us. She is coming in on March 25th in order to spread awareness of anti-bullying throughout our community.
We are the anti-bullying Respect Group and we make sure that our school treats everybody fairly, regardless of differences such as disabilities, religious beliefs or skin colour etc. We believe that our school should be inclusive and celebrate our differences! So far we have carried out a whole-school assembly, held a competition for all classes to create an antibullying heart (the winners are on display in our reception area), and carried out a pupil survey on equality in the school. Our next project is to run a lunchtime football club which everybody is invited to!
Online Safety Group
We are the anti-bullying Online Safety group and we are concerned with keeping everyone in school safe when they are using technology. So far we have done a whole-school assembly and designed a screen-saver which every teacher is going to use on their IWBs to make sure the children know how to keep safe. During Online Safety Week we also talked to all the classes about how to keep safe when playing games on line or using their phones.
We are the anti-bullying Wellbeing Group and we help to make sure the children in school have good mental wellbeing and know how to achieve this. In November 2021 we did a drama roleplay to the whole school to help them understand the different types of bullying. This term each year group joined in with a collaborative Art Project as part of one of our 'Wellbeing Days'. We have also run a lunchtime 'Antibullying Powerpoint' Club which lots of children came to and designed their own powerpoints. We then decided which ones were the winners and they got to show it in assembly. Our next project is to ask all pupils in school to complete a 'Wellbeing Survey' so that we can see where we can further develop our work on having good mental wellbeing.
