Anti Bullying Ambassadors
We are excited to announce that we are launching a brand new peer listening service, which is run by students, for students. A motivated group of 5 students have received training in listening skills and will be available for students to talk to, should they need it.
Sometimes it can feel easier for young people to speak to someone close to their own age. Our peer listeners know how hard it is to be a teenager right now and that having the chance to sit down and have a private chat with someone can really make a difference. They can provide students with an understanding listening ear, tips in managing stress and worry and direct to other support in school that could help. Students can speak to a peer listener during any lunchtime. They will be walking around the school site and will have a private space for one-to-one chats.
The peer listeners will receive regular supervision and have daily contact with our safeguarding team to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all students.
