At Admiral Lord Nelson School, we strive to have a school with no bullying. In the hope of accomplishing this aspiration, our school has Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. Anti-Bullying Ambassadors are pupils from all different year groups who will contribute to the aim to maintain the safe, inclusive school that we are proud of. There is one Anti-Bullying Ambassador in each tutor group so that they can work with their tutor to offer support to any student who comes to them with a problem or concern.
At the beginning of 2020, Miss Nicholas (the leader of Anti-Bullying at ALNS) took ten students from Years 9 and 10 to London to receive training from the Diana Award, which is a programme leading workshops to educate students on how to combat bullying and to learn from experts on these crucial matters. As a result, these pupils learnt what to do if another student approaches them with an issue, what to do if they witness bullying happening and also how to create a campaign for their school to make Anti-Bullying a large topic of conversation at ALNS.
Recently, the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors discussed the action plan to highlight the importance of our Anti-Bullying Campaign. The ten students who were trained by the Diana Award were present at the meeting to assist with the teaching of our new Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.
The Anti-Bullying Ambassadors in each tutor group can be identified by their badges which they will proudly wear as a part of their uniform.
Each one of the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors shares one passion: to stop bullying. Every one of these students is determined to act on their promises and is willing to put their hand up against bullying.
