Becoming an Upstander - our youngest pupils train with national anti-bullying charity
Congratulations to our youngest Diana Award Ambassadors
We are very proud of our Year 7 pupils - over twenty of them have completed the Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme with national charity, The Diana Award. They join our 100+ students who have completed training with the Diana Award.
Supported by HRH The Duke of Cambridge, The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign engages young people, parents and teachers to change attitudes, and build skills and confidence to address different situations, both online and offline. Our pupils took part in discussions and group activities, on issues such as cyberbullying and campaigning.
This is all part of our award-winning Wellbeing programme, that is at the heart of day-to-day life at King's High. There is pride in awards - King’s High is a Diana Award UK National Showcase School, and recently won an All Together Gold School Award 2021 ‘for improving the wellbeing of pupils’ – but there is equal pride in students devising wellbeing sessions for younger pupils, creating social media campaigns for initiatives like Children’s Mental Health Week, organising telephone rotas to call former pupils isolated in lockdowns, or posting encouraging notes for fellow pupils around school.
