At OBA, we believe that we are one team and one family. As a family, we do not tolerate any form of bullying.
Bullying is repeated, negative behaviour that happens several times on purpose. At OBA, it is everyone’s responsibility to stop bullying.
Here at OBA, we are all upstanders and will strive to support each and every member of the OBA Family. We adopt ‘See it – Say it- Stop it!’ as an approach to tackling bullying.
If you are being bullied, or have witnessed and member of the OBA Family being bullied, please report it to a member of staff either in person or using the link below. Always remember to See it – Say it – Stop it!
We have a team of students, led by Miss Roberts, who have been selected to be our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors who have been trained by the Diana Award. Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors are:
Maria Smith , Gavin Shone Bethany Murdoch, Harvey Porter, Eva Cavanagh, Brandon Earwaker, Holly Barks, Jack Highton and Jamie Bloxam
Hayden Godfrey, Layla Carson, Evie Keowski, Liam Spencer, Alice Willcott , Amy Cross, Chloe Brown and Angel Wareing
Engy Hamido Desouki, Maddison Kelley, Victoria Clarke and Libby Fell

Over the course of this academic year, at OBA we have many exciting events that will help all members of the OBA Family to tackle bullying.
All our students will participate in a range of extended form time sessions which will focus on what bullying is and how it affects others. Below you can find an overview of what each session will be about.

About the Anti-Bullying Ambassadors programme
Set up in 2011, the Anti-Bullying Ambassador programme is part of the charity the Diana Award. In 2013 the programme received funding from the Department for Education. The programme offers resources and training to schools and youth organisations in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland and Northern Ireland. After receiving our training students become Anti-Bullying Ambassadors in schools. In their role they help educate their peers on bullying, lead on anti-bullying campaigns, promote a culture which celebrates and tolerates difference and help keep their peers safe both online and offline.
