Home Office launches anti-knife crime lessons ahead of summer holidays
July 27, 2018
Almost 50,000 personal, social, health and economic (PSHE) and KS3 to KS4 teachers have received lesson plans to educate pupils about the dangers of social media, the impact carrying a knife could have on their future, and how they can develop strategies to resist peer influence. The bespoke one hour lessons were created in partnership with the PSHE Association.
Crime Minister, Victoria Atkins said:
“The summer holidays can pose additional dangers to young people, which is why we are determined to do everything we can to keep them safe and give them tools and resilience they need to enjoy the summer break.”
Children’s Minister Nadhim Zahawi said:
“These lesson plans will help illustrate the real impact of knife crime on young people’s lives. It’s heartening to know schools up and down the country are taking advantage of them.”
