WHAT WE OFFER
Our Anti-Violence workshop focuses on a real life story of 17-year-old Lloyd Fouracre who was attacked and killed on a night out. We use a bespoke film featuring interviews with Lloyds family and friends and a re-enactment of the events of the night. This is followed by a discussion and an empathy exercise. We also explore levels of violence in the UK and what pupils can do to keep themselves safe. The session is interactive with lots of opportunities for Q and A. We have versions of this workshop for KS3, KS4 and KS5 and a milder version for year 7 excluding the hard hitting film.
Pupils learn to identify with the power of choice and behaviour linked to it and how to respond to violent situations making safe decisions.
Over 80% of the young people taught report improved attitudes towards violence and bullying following delivery of this workshop.
Our personal safety workshops equip young people with the skills and knowledge needed to keep themselves safe and how to effectively remove themselves from difficult situations.
This practical workshop teaches simple self-defence moves which enable young people to feel confident they can get away from an attacker. Taught by a qualified self-defence instructor this session reinforces the SAV message of not fighting back.

This Anti-Violence workshop focuses on a real-life story of 17-year-old Lloyd Fouracre, an air cadet who was attacked and killed on a night out. We use a bespoke film featuring interviews with Lloyds family and friends and a re-enactment of the events of the night. This is followed by a discussion. We also explore levels of violence in the UK and what pupils can do to keep themselves safe. This is followed by a practical exercise for young people to practice personal safety strategies to help them avoid violence. The session is highly interactive with lots of opportunities for Q and A and no requirements for writing.
Young people learn to identify with the power of choice and behaviour linked to it and how to respond to violent situations making safe decisions. Suitable for ages 11-18 in groups of between 10 and 40 young people.
The Cyberbullying workshop uses real life examples to develop empathy for the victims. It promotes knowledge of social norms and gives young people the confidence to report inappropriate content on social media and to take a more supportive approach to the content they post.
This powerful workshop uses a range of group work and class discussions to start powerful discussions and bring about behaviour change. The real live examples show pupils how cyberbullying can progress and how the intentions of the sender can be very different to the realities for the victim. The examples cover a range of social media including: text messages, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat. They also explore some of the discriminatory behaviour behind bullying and the crossover between face to face and cyberbullying.
The lesson goes on to look at the legal implications and the best practice advice for both reporting cyberbullying and supportive friends. The plenary contains positive social norm statistics and a call for action for pupils to make a pledge to post positivity and messages of support.
The combination of information, empathy, skill development and knowledge of social norms follows evidence based practice for promoting behaviour change.
Suitable for KS3 for class sizes of up to 40 pupils.
A day for primary school children will include a range of interactive, engaging and thought-provoking workshops, drama and art activities along with discovery games linking into the theme of understanding the consequences of actions and changing behaviour. The theme of how behaviour can be affected by mood, feelings and also the substances we put into our bodies, will be explored…
Plan for a Primary Day, drawing from the following:-
- Introduction to the theme via a real life story in e-picture book format: ‘Once upon a Time..’ (Lloyd’s Story)
- Drama centred around recognising feelings and emotions
- Discussions and circle-time involving recognising these emotions in others
- Expressive Art activities depicting changing emotions in colour, shape, tone, form etc using a variety of media incorporating gallery time and sharing time
- Recognising how decision-making can be influenced by how we are feeling; choices we make can be affected by our mood / emotions – use THINK acronym
- Healthy Lifestyles : W.H.O triangle. we are what we consume… How behaviour can also be affected by substances we input to our bodies… Discovery games identifying cause & effects of foods, smoking, alcohol etc
- Learning about effects of alcohol on decision-making through interactive games and activities
- Returning to ‘Lloyd’s story’ and final reflections
A meeting prior to the day to discuss the programme for your children, is highly recommended.
Additional activities will be left with Class Teacher to recap and to continue the topic with class.
*Workshops only available in the South West of England
We thought that it was an excellent workshop and while the material was delivered in a sensitive way, there was no doubting its impact and the fact that the children left with some really important messages.
The class teacher felt that Liz led the day brilliantly and the children took away the intended lessons – this is especially important as our children prepare to transition to secondary school and all of the decisions (e.g. around peer pressure) which they will have to make in the future.
