Leeds West Academy chosen as the Diana Award Ambassador School of the Month in May!
Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors have been chosen as the Diana Award Ambassador School of the Month in May
We are beyond proud of our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors - chosen as the Diana Award Ambassador School of the Month in May!
This is a fantastic achievement, as they have been chosen out of over 1000 active Anti-Bullying Ambassador schools! They have achieved something truly incredible!
This month, we would like to celebrate the fantastic achievements of the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors at Leeds West Academy. The Ambassadors earned their Wellbeing Badge earlier in May, and we were blown away.
The Ambassadors completed a wide range of actions to earn their badge. They created a fantastic promotional video for students, staff, and parents/carers to learn more about bullying behaviour. They also rewrote an accessible, student-friendly Anti-Bullying Policy and set up a lunchtime drop-in group for students to access support. The Ambassadors’ activities strongly emphasised the importance of peer support, which was great to see!
What stood out was the team’s two-year plan, created by Ambassadors to ensure all members of the team stay invested in the anti-bullying mission. As part of this plan, the Ambassadors reflected on their progress and considered how they could improve in the future. They understand that meaningful social action work takes time, and we are so impressed by the drive these Ambassadors have shown!
We cannot wait to check back next year to find out how they’re getting on! .'' The Diana Award
