Three-hour training from the West Midlands Police Violence Reduction Unit (VRU). MVP is a peer lead leadership programme for children which takes the bystander approach. It is a fully resourced programme which is docked into the PSHE curriculum.
Through the use of scenarios, discussion and reflection activities you will challenge, empower and promote a culture of and inclusion within the student population while promoting critical thinking and developing character through the values sessions are based on.
Our pupils are facing challenges outside of school that they need support with how to deal with. This will support a member of your staff team to deliver this in school (Why not send two staff members, so they can work on this as a team?) This is a great opportunity to demonstrate your commitment to the well-being of pupils beyond the school gates, preparing them for the challenges of life in modern Britain. We ran this last year and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. It’s really good.
