Anti Bullying Ambassadors
All children in Year 5 and 6 are invited to apply to become ABAs each year. This year we received many good applications and 11 children were selected for interview on Wednesday 11th September. The interview panel consisted of Mrs Rush, Miss King and two of the returning ABAs - Bayley and Emily from Year 6. The children answered the questions thoughtfully but some showed particular empathy, strength and courage. As a result of the deliberations, the following children will become our ABA team:
Bayley, Emily, Lily and Tyler (returning)
Elentis, Chloe and Adam (Year 6)
Ollie, Mason and Sophia (Year 5)
Every day we have 2 ABAs on duty and we try to make ourselves as visible as possible to everyone by wearing high-vis jackets.
As a school we have ABAs because we want to help children who believe they are being bullied and to protect children from bullying. We do this by:
- Looking out for people who look sad or depressed
- Talking to and listening to pupils
- Reminding pupils not to be afraid to talk to someone about bullying
- Checking our ABA worries and suggestion boxes
