At Derby Moor we have an ongoing commitment to improving the school environment for our students. Derby Moor aims to empower students to understand, recognise, and say no to bullying, violence and harassment by giving them the tools to transform their lives and the lives of their peers.
To support the school in doing this, Derby Moor has over 80 Anti-bullying ambassadors who are there to promote the anti-bullying message and support those that may be subject to any kind of bullying.
Students work with victims of bullying and also any students who display bullying behaviour. Our Anti-bullying ambassadors are paired with students through the inclusion hub. The inclusion hub work closely with students for a number of different reasons. All bullying issues come through the inclusion hub and are dealt with as soon as we become aware.
In addition to this our Anti-bullying ambassadors are involved in all sorts of activities throughout school including parents evenings, open evenings, assemblies, mentoring and Year 5 Transition days.
“I have been an anti-bullying ambassador for 3 years. I have done 7 assemblies since I started in year 7. I have also done several workshops promoting antibullying to year 7 and 8s. I am always around school if someone needs to talk to someone if they are being bullied” Lucy Gratton
"I have reported any incidents of bullying I have witnessed and have mentored two students that have been bullied. I have also carried out workshops with year 7 and year 5 students” Gurkiran Thandi
As a result of completing all of this work, students are then able to work towards their own individual Diana Award. The Diana Award is the only charity that bears the name of the late Diana, Princess of Wales. The Diana Awards encourage young people to take part in voluntary work and work with others in order to make a difference in some way to their lives.
