In June 2023, Loxwood Primary School were invited to take part in the Anti-Bullying Ambassador training programme as part of The Diana Award.
Loxwood Primary School are proud to have six trained Anti-Bullying Ambassadors who are now working with Mrs Swann and Mrs Mellors to earn badges for the school.
The Ambassadors meet once a month to measure their progress. They are currently working on the Wellbeing Badge. This is an anti-bullying campaign that encourages positive wellbeing, spreads kindness and strengthens the peer-support system in our community. They are working with our Wellbeing Ambassador team to help our children focus on their growth-mindset and positivity.
Monday 13th November marked the start of Anti-Bullying Week. We all wore Odd Socks for the day to share the important message of celebrating our differences. The Anti-Bullying Ambassadors presented an assembly to the whole-school about how they are helping our community and they launched their Kindness Competition. Have you been awarded a Kindness Heart today?
About The Diana Award
The Diana Award benefits from the support of HRH The Prince of Wales and The Duke of Sussex and was founded as a lasting legacy to their mother, Diana, Princess of Wales’ belief that young people have the power to change the world.
The Diana Award inspires positive change in the lives of young people through four key programmes; Mentoring for young people at risk, a youth-led Anti-Bullying campaign, a Changemakers programme that aims to reimagine mental health support for young people with Black and Black mixed-race heritage, and a prestigious award – the Diana Award.
The Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme engages young people, parents and teachers to change the attitudes, behaviour and culture of bullying by building skills and confidence to address different situations, both online and offline. It has trained over 50,000 young people across the UK to lead on anti-bullying campaigns in their schools.
