Valley Invicta Primary School at Kings Hill promotes an environment free from threat, harassment and any type of bullying behaviour. As an official Anti-Bullying school trained by the Diana Award Scheme;
Our aims include:
- Ensuring all members of the school community has an understanding of what constitutes bullying.
- Creating an atmosphere and environment where children, parents and staff feel able to tell the school about bullying if it arises and are confident it will be taken seriously and dealt with.
- To put in place clear procedures for dealing with incidents of bullying.
Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors have been trained to engage our pupils to change the attitudes, behaviour and culture of bullying by building skills and confidence to address different situations, both online and offline.

As an Anti-Bullying team we have already completed many activities raising the profile across our school. Since joining the Diana Award 4 years ago, we have been awarded our well-being badge which highlights our commitment to focus on and improve well-being across all pupils, with positive and anti-bullying initiatives at the heart of the work. In addition to the well-being badge we have collated lots of evidence towards our online safety badge, which focuses on teaching our pupils how to stay safe online. The activities we have done as a school towards all of these badges has been a collaboration between the staff and pupil anti-bullying leads and is run in tandem, to give our pupils a voice but also to create the anti-bullying leaders of the future.
As part of our Online Safety Badge application, we provided evidence of assemblies, newsletters and external workshops we had run in school that ensure our pupils are having regular, current teaching on the topic to ensure they can be resilient and confident decision makers.
Our Anti-Bullying Team meet regularly in school and this academic year we will be focusing on our community badge, with the children choosing and delivering how they can raise awareness of anti-bullying within and beyond the school gates.
We believe that providing regular and consistent training for staff and pupils on anti-bullying means that if the worst should occur, it can be addressed and solved quickly. We are a ‘telling’ school and we ask pupils to share their thoughts and feelings, as they are always valued and will always be listened to.
