This morning we were pleased to be able to welcome visitors from the Offending team, funded by the Northampton Community Safety Partnership, to give presentations about Knife Crime to students in Years 7, 8 and 10. Northamptonshire Police were also present with a ‘Knife Arch’ which is used to detect knives (and any other metal objects).
The students found the information given both eye-opening and useful, a
nd hopefully the messages they received will increase awareness and enable them to make safe choices in the future. Parents are encouraged to discuss the issues covered with their children.
Students in Year 9 had a similar presentation in December.
