Kieran’s Story

Kieran, aged 15 from Lincolnshire, is a Diana Anti-Bullying Champion and an Anti-Bullying Ambassador from Winterton Comprehensive School.

The Anti-Bullying Ambassadors at Winterton Comprehensive School make a significant contribution to general school life not only around our own school, but also around other school’s in the region and nationally. We are all Cyber Mentors trained by Beat Bullying and deal with National issues like eating disorders, neglect and problems at home. We regularly attend and influence a ‘feeling safe’ group which talks about all aspects of school whet`her it be bullying, ‘e-safety’, general safety locally around the school and also what can be done to prevent different situations regarding bullying with in our own school and feeder primaries. We hold meetings at our school with anti-bullying ambassadors and we invite people from the local police force, the council and also others to get a wide range of topics to bring up and report back to at the next ‘feeling safe’ group.

From the meetings we had at school, as a group we decided to hold an e-safety eveniJHB G  YHV MNBVCX1ng for parents held by the anti bullying ambassadors to promote idea’s to flag up any issue’s concerning cyber bullying whether it be games consoles or computers . From this night we got excellent feedback.

Another event we went to was the Great Debate where youngsters could voice their opinion; this was part of a take over week where different points were raised to do with the current government and different plans on aspects which could affect youths for example youth services and transport.

We also host a range of other activities. We recently did lots of work for anti-bullying week were we held a ‘Winterton’s Got Talent’ and also different clubs commencing at lunchtime or after school.

We are all really thrilled that we have achieved this award. I have loved every minute of the work that we have done, holding meetings, meeting new people and also taking on the responsibility. We all can’t wait to be given this award, we feel it will be a great day and could also make a significant impact on our own individual futures.
