At St Joseph’s our students play an active role in matters which will affect the student body as a whole.

There are many ways in which students can get involved and make a difference, most notably being the Student Council, by becoming an Anti Bullying Ambassador or Eco Schools representative, or by becoming involved in the house system.

ANTI BULLYING AMBASSADORS

St Joseph’s College is committed to creating and sustaining a culture where bullying is not accepted or tolerated. As part of this ethos, a team of Anti-Bullying Ambassadors take a leading role in the college’s anti-bullying approach.

The role of the ambassadors is to raise awareness in our community, of the issues around bullying and supporting individual students if necessary.

St Joseph’s ambassadors are made up of students from years 8-13 and receive the most up to date training through the national Diana Award Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme and through support from the Local Authority’s lead on bullying. Further information on the Diana Award can be found on their website.

The Anti-bullying ambassadors are very conscious of e-safety and the presentations from an evening they ran can be downloaded from the Parents section in the download zone

The ambassadors’ objectives for 2013-2014 are:

  1. Consistent awareness raising to embed the anti-bullying culture into school life
  2. Rigorous recruitment of new ambassadors
  3. Enhancement and development of the ambassador role within school
