Peace Ambassadors

Led by our hard-working Student Leadership Team, this new initiative will help all of our students feel safe during their time at the Academy.

Speaking at the community assemblies, Chloe and Ellen said:

“First and foremost, we want to help make sure you all feel safe. Tackling bullying is the best way to do this. By providing a safer environment, we want to ensure you can be both happy, and therefore more successful in your life and school work.

We also want to make sure everyone feels welcome and as though they belong at this school, being free to express themselves without judgement from others. We understand the difficulty of coping with a difficult situation when you are concerned about something, which is why we are starting Peace Ambassadors. If there is a problem you can talk about it to one of us in the new Peace Hub at break or lunchtime, send a message via the concerns email or put a message in the concerns box in the library. We want to help and feel doing this is the best way to do so.”

Could you be a Peace Ambassador?

Applications will open on Friday 27th January and students from all years are invited to apply. Collect an application form from the new Peace Hub in the Director of Learning Office and hand in by Friday 3 February. Interviews will take place during the week beginning 6 February.

All Peace Ambassadors will receive training and a badge to wear.
