On Friday 6 March, The Ursuline Preparatory School, Brentwood, invited 10 primary schools to their Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassador Training.
The Diana Award’s mission is to foster, develop, and inspire positive change in the lives of young people. They are proud to be the only charity set up in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales and her belief that young people have the power to change the world.
The anti-bullying Ambassador training empowered both the students and staff to change attitudes, behaviours and cultures of bullying, by building skills and the confidence to address different situations both face to face and online. The training was delivered through the Diana Award’s peer-led approach. The children from all the schools fully participated in the training and put forward some very grown up ideas on how to tackle each scenario that was presented to them.
The expert training equipped the students and staff with the tools needed to tackle bullying head on, helping our schools to transform their approach to bullying and create a safe and positive environment for everyone.
Mrs Mongelard, Assistant Head, who organised the event, was delighted with the way the children from all the different schools interacted with each other, making the day a very rewarding experience not only for themselves but also for the members of staff that accompanied them. It was amazing to see children that had never met before tacking situations and challenges in a very positive and sensible way.
