What We Offer

Violence Awareness

Key Stage 2 (8-11 years)

Assembly

A 40-60 minute session aimed at Years Five and Six, uses a real life example of violence which ended in murder. It enables pupils to develop an understanding of the grief, loss and anger associated with the incident at an age-appropriate level; going on to explore the themes of justice and forgiveness in contrast to anger and revenge. Children have the opportunity to hear and see the people involved in the story speak for themselves; including one of the perpetrators. Teachers and pupils are supported to continue the dialogue begun during the session with the SAV Journal each child receives at the end of the session.
These resources were written in association with an experienced primary deputy headteacher and have been used in a wide range of schools including many in Inner London.

Other versions of this assembly for younger primary children are available on request. These versions present Lloyd’s story as a story book, or cartoon strip . This allows children to access the ideas in a softer way, but with the central themes still being covered.
