The Diana Award has trained over 24,000 young people in over 3,000 schools to be Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassadors and lead on tackling bullying in their schools and communities throughout England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Beal High School students from Years 7 – 12 were involved in this training which aims to empower young people by providing knowledge of what bullying is and how to tackle it. Following this training, our students became one of our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors in Beal High School and will continue our work to tackle all forms of bullying.
Students gained practical ideas and received top tips on how to stop bullying, enabling them to prevent bullying and ensure everyone feels safe and happy in our school, both on and offline. The training included learning some of the following areas:
- Greater understanding of the issue of bullying – facts, effects, identifying bullying, definition and importance;
- Celebrate diversity – recognising strengths/talents in terms of your Anti-Bullying team and school community ;
- Practical ideas, top tips and exploration of scenarios Anti-Bullying Ambassadors may come across;
- Supporting others – basic training looking at the skills needed to support others;
- Action planning – helping young people think big, start small and agree targets/aims for their Anti-Bullying work
