Around 30 students recently took part in the special training session using resources from youth charity the Diana Award.     

One Year 9 student who took part said: “I was impressed by the session, it was thought-provoking and practical with lots of activities, as well as discussion and advice on a wide range of scenarios. I am excited to be part of the Ambassador-programme and would encourage others to do it too.” 

Students who completed the training took part in a series of group activities, discussions and exercises to help them learn how to recognise and tackle bullying so they can work to further strengthen anti-bullying culture and promote kindness. 

Sue Chudley, Head of Year 8, led the training session, she said: “Well done to all students who took part and successfully completed the training to become our Student Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. 

“Bullying is not tolerated and this important programme is another way of underlining that. It is a fantastic programme because it empowers students to help build and strengthen a culture of kindness, well done to everyone who took part.” 

All schools have concerns about bullying and cyber-bullying. We take this very seriously at Colfox and have strong policies in place to combat any bullying. Our anti-bullying policy has been endorsed by OFSTED, but it is something we are always looking to strengthen and improve. If a student has any concerns, they can speak to their teacher or to one of our Student Anti-Bullying Ambassadors. If as a parent or carer you have any concerns, please contact school.    

The Diana Award is a charity that empowers young people to make positive changes to society and was set-up in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales.
