Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors play an important role in encouraging and empowering all members of our community to uphold an ethos of positive attitudes and behaviours. Trained by The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign, they educate their peers on bullying, lead on anti-bullying campaigns, promote a culture which celebrates difference and help keep their peers safe both online and offline.
At Christ Church Primary School, our definition of bullying is:
Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors are highly visible at break and lunchtime and organise regular events to celebrate our school values, friendship, difference, tolerance and anti-bullying. Their hard work and dedication has been recognised by being awarded the Dudley Anti-Bullying Accreditation.
Hello Yellow Day
Annually, our anti-bullying ambassadors raise money for the charity 'Young Minds' by running a 'Hello Yellow Day'. We wear yellow to show young people that how they feel matters. By wearing yellow and raising money for YoungMinds, we can show our support for each other and help YoungMinds create a brighter future for young people to make sure they get the support they need with their mental health.
What did we do on Hello Yellow Day?
- We all wore yellow to raise awareness of the importance of mental health
- We learnt that how we feel matters and that we are not alone with our mental health
- We learnt where to get help if we ever need it
- Our anti-bullying ambassadors sold Hello Yellow pin badges to raise awareness of the charity
- Our anti-bullying ambassadors made self-soothe boxes and shared them around school
- We all received self-affirmation cards throughout the day
Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors raised £780 towards the charity!
Here are some of our self-soothe boxes. Why not make your own?
We also took part in the ITV 'Get Britain Talking' Homework Challenge...
This can be completed any place, any time!
You can continue our learning about mental health by having a conversation with your family at home about any worries or fears that are on your mind.

Anti-Bullying Week 2020
Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors research and design Teamtimes around the theme ‘United Against Bullying’ to raise of awareness of types of bullying and how to tackle them. They design stickers to promote the theme and give these out on the playground. National ‘Odd Socks Day’ is celebrated here to celebrate what makes us all individual and unique!
Anti-Bullying Week 2019
Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors co-ordinated and led activities to celebrate the theme of Anti-Bullying Week 2019 ’Change Starts With Us’. Our ambassadors planned and led collective worship on this theme and were seen on the playground at lunchtimes celebrating the positive changes we can make by handing out colourful anti-bullying bracelets as well as stickers and cards.
It was an important week for our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors as it also saw the launch of our very own anti-bullying motto 'Be You, Be True'. Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors created this motto to remind us all that it is important to be true to ourselves and true to others.
The week culminated in everyone wearing their own clothes, with most importantly odd socks, to remind us all that we are all different yet all equal.
Here is our new anti-bullying poster designed by our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. This is displayed throughout our school to remind us of the importance of our school values as we live and learn together.
