Captive audience for prison visit
Pupils at Spen Valley Sports College got an insight into prison life during an unusual initiative at their school.
Prison officers visited the Liversedge School as part of the Prison, Me, No Way programme which aims to give young people a hard-hitting message about what it is really like to be locked up.
A mock cell was brought into school, as well as a mock street showing the impact of crime on the high street, and the consequences for the criminals.
The pupils took part in a variety of workshops including prisoner insight, prison life, SCARD (support and care after road death and injury), gangs and peer pressure, child exploitation and online protection as well as street crime and anti-social behaviour.
The No Way Trust is a national educational charity set up in 1995 by prison officers who wanted to make an impact on the lives of young people and turn them away from crime and its consequences using highly innovative educational techniques.
