The Diana Award
Anti-Bullying Ambassadors at Weatherhead High School have been awarded the Wellbeing badge as part of their involvement in The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign, becoming the first school on the Wirral to achieve this award.
The Diana Award Anti-Bullying campaign, a prestigious programme dedicated to the late Princess Diana, 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. Within school, our student ambassadors have delivered workshops and support sessions, helping students learn how to be resilient and guide them to access the right support.
To become an Anti-Bullying Ambassador, students submitted a letter of application to the school’s Diana Award Team Leaders, Miss Robinson, Year 9 Academic and Pastoral support worker and Miss Smith, Director of Key Stage 3. So far this year, 100 students have submitted an application, with 17 students successfully becoming Weatherhead’s Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. All ambassadors have attended training days to equip them with the skills to mentor and help students who may need support.
Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors have implemented new initiatives within school to help with student wellbeing as well as continuing to create a positive atmosphere around the school. Team leaders from The Diana Award complemented the ambassadors on all of their hard work by saying:
“We were overwhelmed with how much thought and effort you have put into the Wellbeing focused anti-bullying activities… It seems like all of the activities have had a great impact on the wellbeing of students in your school and we really like that you also focused on wellbeing of staff and Anti-Bullying Ambassadors as well as the wider students. It sounds like the peer support you offer at lunchtimes and on Wellbeing Wednesdays is really creating a culture of supportiveness.’’
This is an outstanding achievement. A huge well done to all our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors!
