We have redeveloped our programme and we are excited to come back out to your schools and work with you on lots of different topics.
Your school will be allocated a PCSO who will deliver all your fantastic sessions, so you will be able to get to know them and have a great time while learning.
The programme has had a refresh and we hope you like the changes. Our youth engagement team will also be visiting schools to ask you what you think of the Mini Police programme you are involved with.
Here is an outline of the modules:
This module of the programme will define what Anti-Social behaviour makes people feel and what it looks like. During the session children will also be made aware of what crimes children and young people are most likely to be involved with. The final message is to ensure reporting importance and methods are shared with the class.
A Diverse World
The module aims to increase the group's knowledge on the diverse nature of the world around us. The module will look at what is stereotyping, specifically around gender stereotypes, and why it is wrong; and how as individuals, schools, and communities, we can challenge these. It introduces prejudice, what the world would be like if we were all the same, and how respect can support positive change.
This session will align to the national week of action in November where possible. It will support the class to understand how their actions can affect others, what bullying might look like or how it might be conducted, and why people might bully. The session will also look at how and who you can tell about being bullied.
With the increasing access and ability of young people on connected electronic devices it is important that they are aware of the dangers involved with using the internet. This session is solely built on child voice reviewing, and discussing statements and knowledge of apps. Discussions will only take place about items, apps or topics that are brought to the room by the class. The session will also share helpful websites and agencies to contact to offer support and guidance.
The class will be asked to look at different scenarios as well as their own conduct - looking at their safety, other members of the community, and their thoughts and feelings. It will include an introduction to how alcohol can cloud judgement and put a person, their family, and friends. in a dangerous or difficult situation. The session aims to share a positive message about making good, informed choices.
This session discusses why hate crime is an offense and how people use protected characteristic prejudices to cause harm to someone or a group of people. The children will look at what hate crime is, what it can look like and how the crime can be reported and its associated consequence. The session will also introduce gender identity.
Random Acts of Kindness
The class will identify what makes them happy and what makes them sad and how to recognise when someone is feeling happy or sad. This will support them to make good decisions about how they engage with their family, friends, school, and wider community.
