The Academy does not tolerate bullying in any form. All members of the Academy community are committed to ensuring a safe and caring environment which promotes personal growth and positive self-esteem for all.
We are proud to be part of the student led Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Programme. Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors give students and staff the skills, practical ideas, knowledge and confidence to effectively tackle bullying in the Academy and communities. The Anti-Bullying Ambassadors are responsible for raising awareness of bullying, leading on campaigns, promoting kindness and ensuring their peers stay safe both online and offline. We are always looking for new recruits to join our team of Anti-Bullying Ambassadors, please see Mr Anderson for further information.
