At The Barlow, we invited The Diana Award into our school in
December 2018, to train not only some of our selected students and
staff to become Anti- bullying Ambassadors but also several local
schools. The training was an all-day event, which provide a great
opportunity for our school to meet other schools within our local
community to share ideas and partake in shared activities. The day
empower all of the young people and staff members by providing
knowledge of what bullying is and how to tackle it. At the end of
the day, students made an action plan of how to approach reducing
bullying in our schools, became Anti-Bullying Ambassadors and The
Barlow became a lead Anti- bullying school in our local area.
The training empowered students and staff to change the
attitudes, behaviours, and cultures of bullying by building skills
and confidence to address different situations both on and offline.
This is all delivered through The Diana Award's renowned peer-led
As Anti- bullying Ambassadors, moving forward we be training the
rest of our students and staff. We also have lots of exciting ideas
to introduce each half term.
