Funding For Nuneaton & Bedworth Secondary Schools

Secondary > September 19th, 2017


We have new funding for this academic year for secondary schools (mainstream and non mainstream) in Nuneaton and Bedworth. This work is funded by the Police & Crime Commission grant scheme with the support of the Nuneaton and Bedworth Safer Communities (Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council).  The programmes available are Working For Marcus (child sexual exploitation awareness), Safe and Sound (teenage partner abuse) and One 2 Many (alcohol and drug awareness).

After the last tour:

  • 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.”

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!!

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.
