Shireland Technology Primary Hosts Anti-Bullying Training

Shireland Technology Primary welcomed primary schools from across the West Midlands for an inspirational one-day Anti-Bullying training session, facilitated by The Diana Award.

Available to schools across the UK, this free programme sees qualified trainers teaching and empowering young people to become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors for their schools.  

Working alongside their teachers, pupils learned about different forms of bullying and scenarios, both face-to-face and online. They then worked to develop the skills, resources and support needed to help them actively challenge attitudes towards bullying and support fellow pupils in their school community. 

At the end of their training, pupils worked with their teachers to create an action plan on how they can approach issues of bullying that may arise in their schools, fully committing themselves to their new role as Anti-Bullying Ambassadors.  

The programme’s sustainable and strong peer-to-peer focused approach to Anti-Bullying work has gained world-class recognition and reputation, placing the scheme and its ambassador schools at the forefront of positive change across the UK and beyond.  

Lady Kirsty Grundy, Principal at Shireland Technology Primary and Director of Primary Education for Shireland Collegiate Academy Trust, said: “Shireland Technology Primary is proud to partner with The Diana Award and host the Anti-Bullying Training Programme. 

“We strive to create a safe and inclusive learning environment where every child feels heard, valued, and supported. Through this programme, we continue to nurture empathy, kindness and understanding among our pupils, whilst empowering them with lifelong values of respect and compassion.” 

Founded as a legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales, the charity aims to foster, develop and inspire positive change in the lives of young people through a range of programmes and mentoring, including the youth-led Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Programme.  

The Anti-Bulling Ambassadors Programme has currently trained over 50,000 young people across the UK to lead Anti-Bullying campaigns in their schools.
