Anti Bullying Ambassadors

Anti Bullying at St Edward’s Church of England Academy

St Edward’s Church of England Academy provides a safe and caring Christian environment for all pupils allowing them to flourish. We encourage pupils to live by our Christian values and endeavour to equip them with the value of respect: respect for themselves, others, differences, boundaries and surroundings.

Pupils are encouraged to understand issues relating to bullying and develop their skills as an upstander, NOT a bystander. We have recently appointed a Pupil Anti Bullying Committee and from this a number of Anti Bullying Ambassadors. This pupil centred approach encourages individuals to take ownership of bulling in their community and raises the profile of our inclusive environment.
