Anti Bullying Ambassadors
September 2023 Anti Bullying Ambassadors completing their consent and boundaries training
In July 2021 we began our journey on the Princess Diana Anti Bullying Ambassadors Programme.
Supported by HRH The Duke of Cambridge, The Diana Award Bullying Campaign engages you people, carers 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.
There are 4 badges we can earn as a reward for all our hard work. They are Respect, Online Safety, Well - Being and Community Action. We are currently working towards our well-being badge.
Well Being Badge
Here are the projects we have been working upon as part of our Well Being Badge.
Wear Yellow For World Mental Health Day
We are proud of the Whole School Community today coming together to wear yellow to support children's and young people's mental health on World Mental Health Day. Have a look at some of the activities organised by the Anti Bullying Ambassadors. Please find attached some activities you may like to do at home.
In today’s fast paced world, taking the time to compliment those around us is important. At Maes Y Coed Compliments Day helps us to teach our children the way to be sincere in their thanks. It also helps them to appreciate those around them and to not take the people in their lives for granted. On Compliments Day all pupils and staff complimented each other anonymously with a message on a post it notes. Our Ambassadors ensured everyone in our school community received a compliment on the day. Above you will see a heart of compliments made by one of our Key Stage 2 classes.
Congratulations to the Ambassadors and the Whole School Community on achieving the Health and Well Being Badge.
