#BeNiceBus Anti-Bullying Tour
Together with Stagecoach, The Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign have just launched an exciting partnership to deliver a bus tour promoting Anti-Bullying in schools across the UK.
The #BeNiceBus tour will visit schools and offers walk-on workshops for young people during which they will explore the impact of cyberbullying. These interactive workshops will encourage young people to think about their actions, offer advice to young people experiencing cyberbullying, and invite students to sign an anti-bullying pledge. This is a free opportunity and resources will be given to each school to take away after the workshops.
The #BeNiceBus offers the following:
Workshops: The #BeNiceBus will spend a day within your school hosting anti-bullying workshops from 10am to 3pm. Each workshop will last 45 minutes and will be delivered to groups of up to 30 young people. Each young person who attends these workshops will be provided with a ‘Staying Safe Online’ workbook and other resources to support them.
Walk-on sessions: During break times the bus can be used as a ‘safe space’ in which young people are free to talk to the facilitator about any issues/concerns they may have and can be signposted to other support networks. Any concerns raised within these session will be passed on to the schools safeguarding lead.
Parental/Teacher workshops: We are able to provide each school with a Parent or Staff workshop to further support your anti-bullying work. (with a focus on cyberbullying). These workshops can be tailored to focus on any areas of concern or interest within your school. These will typically last up to one hour and all members will be provided with a support guide on completion.
After-care: Finally, all schools who host the #BeNiceBus will be provided with an after-care programme, which contains resources for staff and students to help develop their cyberbullying campaign.
