Knife Crime Awareness Week - 27th Jan

We are pleased to share with you that our school has been given the opportunity to take part in a Knife Crime Awareness Week, week beginning 27th January.  One hour sessions will be led by the Police alongside the relevant Citizenship teacher.  All Year 8 Citizenship classes have been selected to participate in the day linked to the Citizenship programme.

Citizenship is the area of the curriculum focused on supporting young people to be safe, healthy and prepared for life.  In some schools, police staff support the delivery of Citizenship by visiting lessons and providing teaching about aspects of the subject, such as staying safe or the law.

The project forms part of a government initiative which aims to combat and reduce knife crime amongst young people.  Northumbria Police are delivering knife crime information and awareness to students in secondary schools across the force area.

We are keen to offer the best support possible to all our students and we believe this will be extremely beneficial for children and the whole school community.
