Nuneaton & Bedworth Tour Success

Secondary > May 19th, 2017


We have now successfully finished our tour of all the secondary schools (mainstream and non mainstream) in Nuneaton and Bedworth. This work was funded by Police & Crime Commission grant scheme with the support of the Nuneaton and Bedworth Safer Communities (Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council).  We ran 12 theatre in education sessions in total of our programme Working For Marcus (child sexual exploitation awareness), Safe and Sound (teenage partner abuse) and One 2 Many (alcohol and drug awareness).

  • As a result of seeing the Working for Marcus programme, 94% of pupils said they felt confident or very confident in spotting signs of sexual exploitation and grooming. One pupil wrote that “As a result of seeing the Working for Marcus session I will keep an eye out for sexual exploitation/grooming. I will warn my friends and I will never do anything I feel uncomfortable with.”
  • 100% of pupils recorded that the Safe & Sound programme helps them to stay safe from teenage partner abuse. One pupil wrote this was because “the programme teaches what a healthy relationship looks like where to seek advice, when and how.”
  • 97% of pupils who participated in the One 2 Many sessions could identify that so called ‘legal highs’ are actually illegal. One pupil wrote “It shows the consequences and effects of drugs and alcohol.” Another wrote “I will think before doing any drugs or drinking alcohol.”

We are pleased to announce that on the back of the success of this tour we have been funded to repeat this tour next academic year. Fantastic news. Thank you PCC and Nuneaton and Bedworth Safer Communities and all the fantastic pupils we met over this tour.



What people say

Take a look at how we’ve helped others

Brilliant acting and interaction with the children. The play itself covered puberty in an open, realistic and humorous way which forms a terrific basis for future discussion with the teacher and each other. So much depends on the enthusiasm of the actors and I feel that we were very lucky to have such a talented pair, not only to perform, but to lead the discussions afterwards. They were able to relate to the children without any embarrassment. SUPERB!!

Governor/Teacher

Compared to other companies we have had covering the same content, the actors were more flexible and accommodating to the children’s individual needs. Through their answers and questions, the children were demonstrating a higher level of understanding, empathy and personal safety.
