Each class at Haydon Abbey has two PE Ambassadors that make up the School Sports Organising Committee.
Their role is to discuss with their class and then within committee meetings with Mr Andrews
This half term the PE Ambassadors have surveyed their class about after school sports clubs and sports clubs outside of school. The purpose of the survey is to find out how active the children are outside of school time, offer new after-school club opportunities which the children are interested to learn more about and create links to clubs outside of school.
A number of Year 5 and 6 are Sports Leaders. Their role is to:

Anti Bullying Ambassadors
Our school Anti Bullying Ambassadors recently attended a local event. The aim 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.
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.
For over 100 years Buckinghamshire Mind has been a trusted charity working to support and represent people with mental health problems living across the county by providing high quality services.
As pioneers for Buckinghamshire Mind's Primary School initiative, Haydon Abbey has been supporting and training students to lend help and support to their peers within the School environment.
Representatives from Mind host an in-School training day for the Ambassadors, discussing the types of mental health issues our children may be struggling with and equipping them with strategies and ideas to help support other children in school – specifically during playtime.
Our ‘Mind Ambassadors’ work in pairs and are on duty every break time on both the playground and in our ‘drop-in room’. With advice and guidance from the School's Pastoral Team, they meet weekly to discuss strategies, further training and receive additional support if needed.
Buckinghamshire Mind will be returning every 6-8 weeks to provide their support and any extra training that they feel or our students feel may be required.
If you would like to know more about the role of our Ambassadors or would like to discuss other issues relating to mental health, please contact our Pastoral Team on 01296 482 278 (option 2).
