An Anti- Bullying Ambassador is someone who works to try to tackle bullying within school. They work together as a team to address any issues and make others aware of the issues relating to bullying and how we can prevent it.
Anti-Bullying Week 2021
This year, Anti-Bullying Week will take place the week beginning 15th November 2021. The theme this year is ‘One kind word’ and this will be our focus for the entire week. During the week, this year’s new Anti-Bullying Ambassadors will be announced during our introductory assembly and there will be a variety of activities throughout the week which will help children understand the impact of bullying and what to do if they suspect they or someone else is being bullied. To raise awareness of Anti-Bullying Week, the children will be encouraged to wear odd socks on the Monday for our introduction to Anti-Bullying Week. We will also see a lot of Elmer this Anti-Bullying Week!
Anti-Bullying Week 2021
Anti-Bullying Week 2021 was a huge success around school. The week began with an assembly, where the school were introduced to the new Anti-Bullying Ambassadors for 2021/ 2022. On Monday 15th November, all children came to school in odd socks to raise awareness of Anti-Bullying Week. In the afternoon, children around the whole school swapped classes and had the opportunity to work with children in a range of different Year Groups. Activities ranged from creating Anti-Bullying videos, acting out scenes to promote Anti-Bullying, creating posters, making friendship soup, among many more activities. During the week, every child created a link for our Anti-Bullying Week paper chain, which is now all joined together and proudly displayed in the school Atrium. The theme for this year’s Anti-Bullying Week was ‘One Kind Word’ and the children enjoyed sharing kind words with one another and will continue to do so.

ANTIBULLYING AMBASSADOR NEWS
Since November all the Anti-bullying Ambassadors have worked tirelessly to support playtimes and lunchtimes, when the longer play can mean more challenges for some children. During this week the ABA team planned a new support system for the playground in the form of a ‘Worry Box’. This is now in the playground in our quiet for all children to access by writing, posting and sharing their concerns. This has been a huge success. As a collective group of ABA’S we continue to meet every Friday at lunchtime and discuss incidents from the week. Worry box concerns that require support are shared and as a team we support each other with resolving difficult situations, looking at ways to enhance our very friendly School, so that all children are aware of who we are. Photographs of the team are displayed in school and we continue to wear our armbands and pin badges. We are also proactive in taking part in assemblies to remind all children about the importance of speaking out against Bullies and knowing that if they need anything, there is somebody they can talk to. I would like to thank all the ambassadors for their admirable efforts in supporting the Children at Kincraig in keeping School a Bully free zone!
