The Student Wellbeing Ambassador Programme was launched at Wingfield Academy in September 2016. We now have a team of ambassadors representing all year groups from within the Academy.
The Student Wellbeing Ambassadors will promote and support the safety and wellbeing of all students throughout the Academy. The Ambassadors will be positive role models for other students and will serve as a mechanism for students to report instances of anti-social behaviour as well as facilitating student voice to influence daily life within school. Ambassadors will also help to review Wingfield Academy’s policies and procedures around safety and wellbeing and will support change where necessary.
The Student Wellbeing Ambassador programme is linked to ENABLE, which is a European Network that aims to tackle anti-social behaviour and equip young people with the skills they need to develop their social and emotional learning. More information can be found about the ENABLE project on their website: http://enable.eun.org/
In September 2016 two of our newly appointed Ambassadors went to the Enable2Act Conference in Croatia. They had the opportunity of sharing practice and listening to young people from all over the world getting to grips with how issues of anti-social behaviour including incidences of bullying can be tackled effectively.
Current projects for the team:
- Form drop in sessions with Years 7 and 8 with a focus on ‘using positive language’. This includes a poster which was designed at the Enable2Act conference by one of our own students.
- Creating a child-friendly ‘Positive relationships’ policy
