Girls at a Sandbach school are training to be ambassadors of the future in me an anti-bullying award scheme set up in memory of Diana, Princess of Wales.

The Anti-Bullying Ambassador Programme equips students and staff with the skills needed to tackle bullying behaviour head on.

Pupils at Sandbach High School and Sixth Form College in Middllewich Road have attended ambassador training sessions which have included parents.

It equips students and staff with the tools needed to tackle bullying behaviour head on, transform your school's approach to anti-bullying and create a safer kinder community.

Tess Ojo, Chief Executive of The Diana award said: "In a year that has seen young people's lives disrupted by the Pandemic, it is even more important that we honour, celebrate but also invest in young people, from across the world, who through their selfless trailblazing efforts have changed lives in their communities."
