At Swanmore College, the Anti-Bullying Committee is at the centre of pupil voice activities with many opportunities for pupils to become involved. We are always striving to ensure that pupils feel safe and supported and know how to prevent bullying as well as responding to any bullying incidents.

Hot off the Press!
Anti-Bullying Community Action Badge
We are delighted to announce that Swanmore College has just received the Community Action Badge/Award from The Diana Award. The Diana Award is a charity which trains our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors across the UK. They have praised our Ambassador and Committee members on their work over the last 14 months to promote Anti-Bullying across our community as well as providing support for pupils experiencing bullying. Activities included hosting Anti-Bullying Week alongside Year 11 Charity Week (November 2020) to raise funds for Anti-Bullying Charities, leading training sessions for Senior Prefects in order to spread the understanding of bullying issues, providing training sessions for staff and governors, recording an information video for parents (see link below), producing an annual newsletter highlighting all activities relating to Anti-Bullying at Swanmore and providing support for pupils and staff through posters and help cards (given to every pupil).
The Diana Award has now invited our Ambassadors to apply to become part of the Anti-Bullying National Youth Board.
Well done to everyone involved. As a college, we have now earned the Well Being and Community Action Badge from The Diana Award. The Committee have chosen to work toward the Respect badge over the next 12 months. Watch this space!
