Anti-bullying Training Session run by The Diana Award
On 24th November 2022, 10 pupils took part in a one-day anti-bullying training session run by The Diana Award at Campsmount Academy. Young people, aged 8-11, worked together and acquired vital skills to enable them to change the attitudes and behaviours of bullying by building their skills and confidence to address different situations, both off and online.
The Diana Award’s free Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme, which is available to schools across the UK, sees trainers working with students and other young people to change the attitude surrounding bullying both across the UK and beyond. The programme has a strong peer-to-peer focus, with trainers giving young people the skills and confidence to become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors to tackle bullying in their schools long after the training has finished. The Diana Award’s anti-bullying work is recognised as world-class thanks to this sustainable approach.
The training looked at bullying in different situations including face-to-face and online. At the end of the day, pupils made an action plan of how to approach bullying issues that may arise in our school and committed to their roles as Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.

At Saltersgate Junior School, our children realise the importance of following our school RESPECT values. These values help us at school in so many ways. They help to prevent bullying, they help us be a better friend, they give us empathy towards children with different needs so we can show our understanding, they help us be a better citizen and prepare us for adulthood, we understand to never give up, they help us set new goals and challenges but most of all, they help us be US.
