National CSE Day 2024

STOPCE Awareness Day 18 March

The Family Engagement team at New Heights KS3 secured funding from Cobalt Housing, to provide students with a full day of workshops from CELLS project.

The students embarked on an eye-opening exploration of crime awareness through an immersive workshop facilitated by C.E.L.L.S. Known for their commitment to educational awareness programs, C.E.L.L.S provided a platform for students to delve into crucial issues surrounding criminal involvement, gangs, exploitation, bullying, and the workings of the criminal justice system.

Led by The CELLS Team, the workshop engaged students in dynamic discussions and interactive activities designed to deepen their understanding of the societal factors contributing to crime. Through thought-provoking dialogues, students explored the root causes of criminal behaviour and its impact on individuals, families and communities.

As the day unfolded, students participated in role-playing scenarios and case studies that shed light on the complexities of navigating peer pressure, resisting exploitation, and understanding the consequences of criminal actions. These hands-on exercises not only fostered empathy but also equipped students with practical strategies for making informed decisions and seeking support when faced with challenging situations.

Additionally, the workshop provided a platform for students to engage in open dialogue about their concerns and experiences related to crime and its associated issues. By creating a safe and supportive environment, C.E.L.L.S empowered students to voice their opinions, ask questions, and seek guidance from knowledgeable facilitators.

By the end of the workshops, students emerged with a newfound awareness of the importance of crime prevention and community safety. The feedback received from both students and facilitators alike was overwhelmingly positive, highlighting the impact these workshops have had on our school community.
