Anti-bullying Ambassadors are ready for action after receiving their brand new ties.
A group of students from across the school have been selected to take part in the initiative. It’s hoped the new ties will help others to identify them easily.
The Ambassadors have placed an anti-bullying box in Student Reception. This is for anyone to put in an anonymous note if they feel they are being bullied or may have witnessed it.
Students have also organised themselves into year group teams to cover a drop-in. This will be a space for children at the school who can receive advice or pass on information to the Pastoral Team if needed.
Cooper, Year 9, is one of the Bully Ambassadors.
He said: “We were chosen for the role. I think having an Anti-Bullying Ambassador group is a good thing. We have been shown how to look out for things. We were all trained and we did some role playing during the training.
“It is a good thing for the school and we will do our best to help out.”
Claire Meakin, Pool Academy Principal, said: “After a rigorous selection process the ambassadors have now been trained to support all students across the academy.
“The ambassadors have lots of ideas about how to ensure all students feel happy and safe at Pool Academy. We are excited to harness their enthusiasm to make changes if they are needed.”
