Student Safeguarding Ambassadors

New safeguarding Ambassadors 

Sixth Form Ambassadors have worked hard, on their very own ‘Bin Bullying’ campaign, that started with the creation of a student anti-bullying leaflet which they handed out to all students when they delivered their anti-bullying assembly the week commencing the 21st February. As part of the ambassadors’ campaign to increase awareness and impact of bullying and the importance of reporting, they produced a short video promoting kindness and our zero-tolerance approach to any form of discrimination. Sixth Form Ambassadors started the preparations to visit Harris Academy Merton Primary School in Term 2, to deliver online safety talks to Year 6 students; we could not be prouder of their drive to educate others including many future Harris Academy Merton students.


Key Stage 3 and 4 Safeguarding Ambassadors designied anti-bullying posters focusing on the message of zero tolerance to racism, homophobia, and any form of discrimination. During the second half term they were busy spreading their ‘one act of kindness’ message to highlight how important it is to be kind to others and show compassion. Working as a team they initiated the ‘one act of kindness’ sweet bags that students and staff could purchase for each other or a family member; students included a brief message to show their appreciation. It was incredibly heart-warming to see 62 ‘bags of kindness’ sold on the first day! The ambassadors would like to share with you the quote that helped to inspire their idea.

"I thought caring was a superpower. I was right! Caring about stuff, that’s what really matters. Kindness. Making other people feel good."

Sixth Form Ambassadors led whole school assemblies last term focusing on their anti-bullying campaign and our zero-tolerance approach to any form of unkindness or discrimination. Please view the video they created here. They also successfully delivered the online safety workshops they had prepared the previous term at Harris Merton Primary School to Year 6 students.

"The Year 6 students were so excited to participate in a social media workshop led by Harris Academy Merton sixth form students. It was fun, engaging and most importantly included up-to-date online safety advice. Thank you and please come back soon" Harris Academy Merton Primary.

 Following on from the success of the online safety talks at Harris Academy Merton Primary, Sixth Form Ambassadors planned and taught starters in Year 7 Computer Science lessons to extend students’ knowledge of the most popular social media Apps.

Student Ambassadors


Sixth Form and KS3 and KS4 Safeguarding Ambassadors took part in a one-day anti-bullying training session run by The Diana Award.

Our Safeguarding Ambassadors, aged 11 to 17, worked together and acquired vital skills to enable them to change the attitudes and behaviours of bullying in their school by building their skills and confidence to address different situations, both online and off.

Over the next 6 months they will be tasked with creating innovate ideas to further eradicate bullying and peer on peer abuse.
