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.
Anti-Bullying Week 2021
This year for Anti-Bullying Week, our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors ran a poster competition focusing on 'One Kind Word'. We had some fantastic entries, but chose these four posters for our winners, well done everyone! These posters will be used around school to promote anti-bullying!
Hello Yellow Day
On Hello Yellow Day we celebrate in support of Young Minds for World Mental Health Day. To mark this occasion, children wear something yellow e.g. a yellow t-shirt, a yellow hairband, yellow socks, or maybe even a yellow onesie! They wear all yellow if they wish or a token ‘yellow’ item with otherwise casual clothing.
On this day we discuss the importance of keeping mentally healthy and celebrate the little things we can do to look after ourselves and support each other. We consider how small acts of kindness can make a big difference to others.
By wearing yellow, which is normally associated with sunshine and happiness, we show young people they are not alone with their mental health. The more people who show they care, the more comfortable young people will feel about talking to someone if they’re struggling.
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!
Our anti-bullying ambassadors planned and led several assemblies for the whole school on the theme of online safety. They helped us all think about how we can be 'SMART' when online.
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.
