Knife crime: video and optional activity to help your staff to:
This training will help you meet expectations under Keeping Children Safe in Education for staff to know about signs of involvement in serious violent crime, the risks, and how you manage these risks.
Is knife crime a pressing issue for your school?
> Yes, I want staff to have a good understanding of the issue and have the opportunity to put their learning into practice
Deliver the whole presentation, including the video and activity. The activity will give staff an opportunity to practise what they learn from the video, so they feel more confident talking to a child about not carrying a knife. Allow about 40 minutes to do this, and 30 minutes to prepare.
> No - I want to increase awareness of the issue
Allow 25 minutes to show the video and deliver slides 1 to 3, and slides 6 to 9. Set aside 20 minutes to prepare. This will give staff the main information they need to know, but without the chance to put their learning into practice.
Or, if you can't deliver a face-to-face session, send out the staff handout and ask staff to watch the video and read the handout in their own time.
Remember: you need to be logged in to The Key Safeguarding to watch the video.
