Amesbury CE Primary School


Anti-Bullying Silver Status School

We recently completed the Diana Award Anti-Bullying Programme and obtained United Against Bullying Silver School status. Just 24% of the 296 schools who completed the programme received silver status, so we are very proud to have achieved this!

The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Programme raises awareness of bullying behaviour and supports schools and young people to tackle it across the UK and beyond. The Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme has a strong peer-to-peer focus, giving young people the skills and confidence to become Ambassadors to tackle bullying in their schools long after the training has finished. Their anti-bullying work is recognised as world-class thanks to this sustainable and youth-led approach.

We have 22 student Anti-Bullying Ambassadors within the school who completed the programme and who continue to work with staff and other students to reduce bullying and help to stop it. 

We take bullying of any sort very seriously and will deal with it immediately. Every November we take part in national anti-bullying week, which helps children to identify whether bullying is happening and how to report it and stop it. During this time we also have a focus on how we can all play a part in putting a stop to bullying in our school. We do this through assemblies, PSHE lessons and other activities.
