We expect our children here at Poolsbrook to follow our core school value of care. However, we recognise that sometimes children can be unkind to each other and in some rare cases this can lead to bullying. The Anti-Bullying Ambassadors programme provides our children with the opportunity to work together to raise awareness and offer support to combat bullying.
Anti-Bullying Ambassadors (ABAs) help educate their peers on bullying, lead on anti-bullying campaigns, promote a culture which celebrates and tolerates difference, and help keep their peers safe both online and offline.
Our ABAs meet regularly – about once a month – to discuss ways in which to promote the programme and share ideas about how to offer support to the children who may require it.
To become one of our ABAs children should demonstrate the following:
- They are passionate and committed about stopping bullying in our school
- They know what bullying is and what type of behaviour is and isn’t bullying
- They work with their peers and staff to stop bullying in our school
- They are someone who is kind, empathetic, a good listener and supports their peers
- They help to run days in our school that raise awareness of bullying and promote kindness
- They celebrate the things that make you and others special and unique
- They keep everyone up to date with all of the brilliant Anti-Bullying work the school does.
