Over a hundred young people from local schools in Norfolk have received training and shared top tips on how to prevent bullying in their schools and communities. The training day was held at Aylsham High School on 10th October 2014. 

The training day brought together young people from primary and secondary schools, of all ages and abilities, across the region and trained as Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. Including students from Reepham High School, Fakenham Academy, Hellesdon High School, Colby Primary School and Bure Valley Junior School. The young people creatively explored and understood the issue of bullying. They networked with other young people and exchanged ideas. They gained practical ideas and received top tips on how to stop bullying. Ultimately these Ambassadors left with an action plan aimed at helping them to prevent bullying and ensure everyone feels safe and happy in their school.

The Diana Awards runs the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors programme, a nationwide peer led initiative with over 7,250 trained Ambassadors in over 600 schools across the UK.

Alex Holmes Programme Manager says: “As a former victim of bullying I know how isolated and unhappy a young person can feel when they are being targeted and I am passionate about helping these people. The Anti-Bullying Ambassadors programme gives young people the confidence to stand together against bullies and support one another.  We give Ambassadors the skills and tools to successfully spread the message – bullying will not be tolerated.”

Kirsty Connor said: “We are delighted to be part of the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Programme and proud to host the training event at Aylsham which will enable schools in Norfolk extend their effective anti-bullying programmes in the same way we have with our Diana Award winning peer support group Friendly Faces.”

The Diana Award was established in 1999 in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales, as a legacy to her belief in the power of young people to change the world.
