Anti-Bullying Ambassadors (ABAs)
On Thursday 5th May some of the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors (ABAs) went on Antibullying Ambassador training with 10 other Primary schools. The training was delivered by the Diana Award and will help us implement lots of changes over the next year or so, to help Jennett’s Park be the very best it can be!
We defined bullying as ‘repeated, negative behaviour that is intended to make others feel upset, uncomfortable or unsafe.’ We spent a long time looking at different scenarios and working out if it was bullying behaviour. There are 3 different types of bullying: verbal, physical and indirect. We learnt how to identify the signs of someone experiencing bullying behaviour and how we can report it and end it.
We also thought about ways that can decrease the amount of antibullying behaviours and ways to increase positivity and inclusiveness. We are currently collating the first phase of our plans and the future of the award at JP and really excited to get going.
We have filmed our first video where we introduce ourselves as the ABA team to everyone and would like to invite everyone in every year group to the gazebo on Fridays to say hello to us. We are going to be there every Friday lunchtime by the willow mounds, if you would like to talk to any of us about how someone else is making you feel.
We are also hoping to start something called Feel Good Friday every month to help JP be a place that makes people happy just for being them. These Fridays could be doing something silly like the ‘Put Everything Down and Dance’ or even a dress up day like we already do, like for Yellow Day.
We will tell you more about them in good time!
