Anti Bullying

The Diana Award is proud to be the only charity set up in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales and her belief that young people have the power to change the world. There are two things within it that they focus on – young people and change. Throughout all of their programmes and initiatives ‘change’ for and by young people is central. Their anti-bullying work encourages change in attitudes and behaviours for young people by young people.

In October 2018, Tewkesbury School sent 10 students on a training programme to become anti-bullying ambassadors. Since their training, the student ambassadors’ have been working hard alongside the Student Parliament Ministry for Justice and Wellbeing to promote a culture of respect and wellbeing at Tewkesbury School.

In April, the student ambassadors launched their own anti-bullying week where they introduced their new Student Charter. The aim of the charter is to show students the high expectations we have in terms of how they treat each other.  The ambassadors have also been mentoring some of our younger students, performing random acts of kindness and handing out ‘thank you’ gifts to our students who always treat others with kindness and respect.

The student ambassadors are always available should any students feel like they need someone to talk to or need to report any concerns.  To make this easier they have launched an email reporting service which is also monitored by anti-bullying coordinator Miss Pugh.
