Buckinghamshire County Council
26th September 2017
Haydon Abbey were invited to attend this event with four of our Year 6’s.
The aim of the event was to increase young people’s understanding of the harm of bullying, particularly around race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and disability and to enable them to implement these anti-bullying initiatives back in their schools.
Throughout the day the children attended various workshops based around identity bullying and were encouraged to talk about their own opinions and beliefs and how their own schools dealt with issues around bullying.
At the end of the day our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors were presented with a badge and signed a pledge, along with all the other children attending, that will be on show within the county council offices.
The information and understanding they have gained from this training will also be shared with our Year 6 Mind Ambassadors to help empower them all to tackle any bullying they may see in school.
