Safe Strong and Resilient
Over four days in April a selected group of Year 8 and 9 students had the opportunity to take part in Safe, Strong and Resilient Programme run by the Freedom Personal Safety Company.
The 3 key elements of the programme were:
Here students worked on aspects of self-esteem, goal setting and increasing personal resilience.
Sensitive but important subjects such as online safety, understanding grooming and sexual exploitation and how to keep safe were addressed.
Students were then encouraged to work in groups and further develop the issues and subjects they had worked on in the previous sessions.
During the course of the programme the students gained a further understanding of the important issues that impact on young people today.
