Our anti-bullying ambassadors attended their second Diana Award training session on 12th March 2021, which means they have had 6 hours of training in total.
- How to identify if incidents are bullying behaviour or 'unpleasant, nasty or unkind behaviour '
- They know the three types of bullying behaviour
- They know the signs that indicates someone may be experiencing bullying behaviour
- How to respond to incidents of bullying behaviour
Alongside the anti-bullying ambassadors these adults will be supporting them on their journey:
Mrs Martin Mrs Carruthers Mrs Goldfinch and Mrs Wheeler
They are very excited to share the information they have learned and lead campaigns across the school to support the Anti bullying project.
From one of our ambassadors:
As anti-bullying ambassadors, our job is to help. We have already started training with the amazing organisation The Diana Award. We look forward to helping the school community and others.

Anti Bullying Guide
Here is our Anti-Bullying Guide:
Positivity Post Box
Here's some news from one of our Ambassadors about something exciting that's coming soon:
We had to get Mr Knight to build us a postbox for the children and adults. He was also building the Santa's Grotto at the same time. The Positivity Postbox is for everyone to write positive notes to friends or other people.
We've been collaborating with Mrs Wheeler on a child-friendly version of the Anti-bullying Policy. We look forward to sharing it with you when it's complete!
Anti Bullying Week
We held our Anti-Bullying Week on week beginning 14th November. During this week, this year's Anti-Bullying Ambassadors were chosen and received their first training. They got to work during the week preparing their noticeboard to keep the school up-to-date with their activities. Some of the children have also been working on videos, which explain types of bullying and they will soon be sharing these with the school.
An update from the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors about this term:
We made a poster (we're also going to do one for Y3) and have been putting up new displays. 'True Authentic Self', looking at value animals and they are Happy Hippo, Open-minded Octopus, Adventurous Aardvark and Aspirational Ant.
This term we are working towards our Well Being badge:
Anti-Bullying Board Updates
See below for a picture of our board!
Our words are bystander upstander and anti bullying
We will be helping classes this term understand what these words mean and sharing ideas of HOW to be an upstander, how to spot the signs that someone is experiencing bullying behaviour and who to speak to about it.
We have also reminded everyone about the previous work we have done on anti bullying
The three types of bullying behaviour and how bullying behaviour makes people feel.
We have been working on sharing what priory fields children have learned from anti bullying week. We have a special focus on well being as we are working towards out well being badge from the Diana award.
We have been busy creating posters to be displayed outside every classroom so people know who the anti bullying ambassadors are.
Look out for out flyer which is coming soon!
From our Ambassadors:
We upgraded the upstairs Anti-Bullying display.
Do you remember how to be an upstander?

Term 2 - Meeting
We held our meeting. We planned Anti-Bullying Week (w/b 15th November) and we got an email from the Diana Award saying that we will get our badges soon! We are excited to plan the ways we are going to stop bullying!
Term 1 - Assembly
In assembly we learnt about indirect bullying. We opened envelopes containing statements of types of bullying behaviour. One was repeated, for example rolling your eyes at someone. The next was repeated again and was making fun of someone to others or mocking them. There were also more. Collaborative Cat was there and Mrs Wheeler said that Collaborative Cat can help with anti-bullying as we all collaborate with each other.
