Anti-Bullying Ambassadors

Don't be a bully, be a buddy!

 

Who are we?

 

We are the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors! We are around the school to help anyone with any friendship problems, if children want help or advice, if they feel like they are being bullied or if they think they have seen bullying in school. We also run a friendship group on a Wednesday lunchtime where children can come and play group games and hopefully make some new friends.

 

 

Our Aims

 

Our aim is to stop and prevent bullying in our school and make it a kind, safe place where everyone likes to be and feels comfortable and safe to be themselves.

 

Together we are an Oldswinford family.

 

Join us in using our super powers for good!

What is bullying?

 

Bullying is repetitive, negative behaviour.

It is when someone says or does something intentionally (on purpose) hurtful and they keep doing it, over a period of time, even when you tell them to stop or show them you are upset.

 

At Oldswinford CoE Primary we say:

 

When someone says or does something unintentionally hurtful, and they do it once, that’s not nice.

 

When someone says or does something hurtful intentionally, and they do it once, that’s mean.

 

When someone says or does something hurtful intentionally, and they keep doing it, that is bullying.

Our anti-bullying event

 

16th November 2020

 

This year has been very different to most and unfortunately we have been unable to carry out our whole school event. However, we thought it was important to still carry out activities within our bubbles to help raise awareness of bullying and try to prevent it from occurring.

 

Here are some of the things that we did as a school in our bubbles:

* we had an anti bullying worship presentation to raise awareness which we carried out in our own bubbles

* 30 acts of kindness challenge

* design a new logo for our displays (competition)

* what I want in a friend

* making anti-bullying wristbands

* create a whole school display

* scenario cards and games to discuss whether the situation was mean or if it was bullying

* bucket fillers - children write nice comments on post it notes to fill each other's bucket.

 

Although we have not been able to do our fundraising event this year, we are hoping to raise enough money later in the year by doing another event where we can all be together, or next year. Any money raised from this will go with the money raised in 2019 and go towards funding the anti-bullying and outdoor learning area.

 

Thank you so much for your continued support! 

 

Our anti-bullying event

 

11th November 2019

 

On this day the children took part in lots of fun activities to help raise awareness of bullying and how to prevent it within school.

Here are some of the things that we did as a school:

* we had an anti bullying assembly to raise awareness

* cake and wristband sale to raise money for an area in school for our Anti-bullying ambassadors

* we had a 'monster' focus this year to link in with our school reward system of dojo's

* we had circle time, where we said negative comments to our heart and folded it each time, we then said positive comments and opened out our heart. We could see that the folds were still visible because that does not take away the things that have been said/done. Before you speak, think and be smart, it's hard to fix a wrinkled heart.

* watched a video about bullying and had class discussions

* each class also made an anti-bullying pledge to keep in their classrooms as a reminder

* designed an anti bullying poster for the school (competition)

* parachute games to celebrate people’s differences

* hurdle games to overcome negative comments

* javelin games to get the positive comments

* looked at how to be a good friend (what makes a good/bad friend) and made hand wreaths

 

We managed to raise nearly £400 by selling cake donations and selling anti-bullying wristbands!!! This money will be kept until our next event, when we hope to raise some more money to go towards our anti-bullying area, which can also double up as an outdoor learning area. How exciting!

Thank you so much for your generosity and support!

Our anti-bullying event

 

16th November 2018

 

On this day the children took part in lots of fun activities to help raise awareness of bullying and how to prevent it within school.

Here are some of the things that we did as a school:

* had an anti bullying assembly to raise awareness

* superhero themed fancy dress

* cake and wristband sale to raise money for The Diana Award

* watched a video about bullying and had class discussions

* designed an anti bullying emblem for the school (competition)

* circle time about who their hero is

* parachute games to celebrate people’s differences

* hurdle games to overcome negative comments

* javelin games to get the positive comments

* looked at how to be a good friend (what makes a good/bad friend)

 

We managed to raise £321.99 by selling cake donations and selling anti-bullying wristbands!!! This money has been donated to, ‘The Diana Award’.

This charity helps raise awareness in schools, train more anti-bullying ambassadors, all with an aim to make schools bully-free zones.

We know that this money will go a long way in helping to combat bullying in schools. Thank you so much for your support for this worthy cause!

The results from our Anti-bullying event questionnaire 2018/2019...

This questionnaire was sent out to every class to complete and we were very pleased with the feedback that we received! It is apparent that the event was a huge success and we aim to carry out a big event each year to help raise awareness of bullying and prevent it within our school.

 

The results from each class show:

  • it was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
  • it had an impact within the school.
  • the children are confident and know who to go to if they see bullying or feel they are being bullied.
  • the anti-bullying ambassadors are being used effectively by the children for any issues.
  • the Wednesday lunchtime club that is run by the ABA's is very popular.

 

Based on the results the ABA's are going to:

  • provide lesson ideas associated with anti-bullying (to be put on the t:drive) so that members of staff can access these as they wish, especially if it is more of an issue within their class.
  • train more ABA's so that there are more available for lunchtime activities and any problems within school.
  • when planning Anti-bullying events next year, ensure all members of staff carry out all of the activities to ensure it is as effective as it can be.

 

We cannot wait for our next event!

Believe, achieve and shine brighter together.
