Anti-bullying Ambassadors

 

 

Ambassadors Statement


We are the Anti-Bullying Ambassador’s at Salendine Nook High School. Our aim is to make our school a safe and friendly environment for all students. We have various roles, such as patrolling around the school and also have drop-in sessions in ST1 every lunch for anyone who feels they are being bullied and need support.

Schools must tackle bullying - IT’S THE LAW

  • To eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation.
  • To have equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.
  • To foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.

EACH MEMBER OF STAFF HAS A LEGAL DUTY OF CARE TO IMPLEMENT THESE AIMS.

What to do if you are being bullied

  • Tell a trusted adult, it could be anyone.
  • Don’t retaliate (don’t fight back-physically or verbally) If you remain calm the bully will get in trouble and not you.
  • Tell one of our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.
  • Go to room ST1 on every lunch to share your problems and get support.
  • Don’t suffer in silence, the moment you speak out, things will start to get better.
  • Keep a diary of what is happening to you. Keep evidence if you are being cyber bullied, this can be printed off and shared with your parent/guardian.
  • Unfriend people who are sending nasty messages through social media. Block people who are making you feel upset, unsafe or uncomfortable.
  • Report nasty messages/content to site administrators and your parents

They are going to put up posters around school to promote anti-bullying

  • We have set up an anti-bullying page on the school website. Pupils can go there for information and support.
  • We will aim to educate all pupils about the role of the bystander and make it easier for pupils to report bullying.
  • We will have anti-bullying patrols at lunchtime. These will involve supporting pupils who are on their own or look distressed and upset.
