Julian writes to local schools to encourage them to take part in The Diana Award’s anti-bullying programme

May 1, 2019

Julian has today written to the city’s primary and secondary schools to bring to their attention the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors Programme, run by The Diana Award, a charity established as a legacy to Diana, Princess of Wales.

To date the programme, which is free of charge for schools, has trained over 31,000 young people from over 3,000 schools across the country. The programme consists of a one day training session to equip students, staff and parents with the knowledge, confidence and skills to effectively tackle bullying both online and offline. In addition, a dedicated Anti-Bullying Ambassador will be designated for every school: young people trained to provide peer to peer support and lead ongoing anti-bulling initiatives in their classrooms.

Commenting on the programme Julian said:

“I am proud to be supporting such an important programme which is already making a positive difference in York. Earlier this year I saw this for myself at the Manor CofE Academy in my constituency where students and staff were taking part in an engaging and well-run training day.

The peer to peer approach of the programme has the potential to make a real difference and I hope that other local schools will consider training their own Anti-Bulling Ambassadors using the fantastic resources that the Diana Award is providing.”
