A GROUP of youngsters from a Formby school have become ‘Anti-Bullying Ambassadors’ after they completed a one-day training course.
Ten pupils (pictured) from St Luke’s CE Primary School took part in the anti-bullying training session run by The Diana Award.
The free Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme, which is available to schools across the UK, sees trainers working with students and other young people to change the attitude surrounding bullying.
Headteacher at St Luke’s, Mrs Sharon Cowey, said: “Whilst incidents of bullying are rare in our school, we must not be complacent. Children need to be able to recognise bullying behaviours and speak out about them.
“By training ten of our older pupils as Anti-Bullying Ambassadors, we hope to raise awareness of what bullying behaviour looks like and equip our children to stand up and make a difference. Our team of ambassadors has already got some great ideas to roll out in the new school year.”
