The Clewer Initiative has produced lesson plans for schools and youth leaders to raise awareness of the nature of county lines. The sessions include information, activities and case studies that show the scale of this crime as well as the impact it has on children, families and communities. Pupils will be encouraged to look out for each other and will be signposted to people and places to go if they have concerns.
Why has The Clewer Initiative developed material for schools?
Teachers, youth leaders and statutory partners who attended our Breaking County Lines courses regularly asked us if we had any material that was suitable for use in schools. We knew there was huge demand for something that could be used directly with children and young people and act as a preventative tool. We decided to develop something for KS3 and KS4, that was ready to go and could be used in secondary schools. We are currently working on material suitable for KS2 too.
