Award winners for the Welsh Anti-Bullying Week School Staff Award announced

Each year the Anti-Bullying Alliance coordinates Anti-Bullying Week in schools across Wales. This is the first year we have held an award for school staff who go beyond the call of duty to support children with issues such as bullying, family life, relationships and health. The unique thing about the award is that pupils nominate the member of school staff they think should win the award and the winners are chosen by a panel of young people.

All nominees have received received a certificate to surprise the school staff and we've worked with young people to select two winners, one for primary and one for secondary. We're delighted to deliver the School Staff Award in Wales with our friends at BulliesOut

We are delighted that St David's Hotel & Spa have supported the School Staff Award Wales and provided prizes for the Primary and Secondary School award winners. Winners will receive an Overnight Stay with a Full Welsh Breakfast and use of the Spa at the 5* St David’s Hotel and Spa in the picturesque Cardiff Bay.  

The winners are ... 

Ms Williams

“Ms Williams is kind and friendly and always makes sure the children are kind to each other. She is a very good role model and shows us how to be kind and funny. If we are sad or lonely or worried she will check on us and let our parents know we are ok. She makes us smile when we are sad and she helps us make friends with other children.”

Miss Chewins

“When I was bullied and had some issues with girls in my year she was there for me when nobody else was, we would eat lunch together and have cups of tea and biscuits whenever I’d feel down. When we had lock downs due to coronavirus she would email me and ring me weekly to check how I was doing, she is kind and very caring”
