Year 9 Students hear The Blunt Truth about Knife Crime

As part of PSHE, our Year 9 students had workshops with representatives from The Blunt Truth, which is a collaboration between the Avon and Somerset Police and the NHS that aims to educate the next generation about the consequences of knife crime, both in a criminal and a health context. 

The students heard from Army reserves and ambulance staff who taught them about the dangers of carrying a knife and the importance of reporting knife crime, and discussed how knife crime impacts lives.  

The one-long workshop also provided a practice element, allowing students to learn lifesaving First Aid skills and on how to deal with a knife wound.

This was a really insightful workshop and we want to say a big thank you to The Blunt Truth for visiting us.
