Outline of the Student Leadership Team Structure
Anti-Bullying Ambassadors (Years 7-13) - Are officially trained students in Years 7-13 who have been trained by the Diana Award, Anti-Bullying campaign. The role of an Anti-Bullying Ambassador is to educate students on bullying behaviours; lead Anti-Bullying campaigns; promote a culture which celebrates and tolerates differences, and help keep our peers safe both online and offline. Anti-Bullying Ambassadors job is to promote kindness and positivity in the college and local community. The ambassadors act as buddies for those students who are struggling to make friends; they also lead the college's Kindness Month which takes place in March every year. This year students made Easter Bags for local residents in a care home. These included Easter cakes, biscuits, cards and kindness pebbles all decorated and made by the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. If you enjoy being really creative, you’re positive, kind and you want to make the difference, you would be a perfect Anti-Bullying Ambassador!
