Last year, Year 11 took part in a Nottinghamshire County Council and Nottinghamshire Police sponsored project looking at issues around consent. At the end of the workshops the pupils wrote and recorded radio adverts to inform other teenagers about the importance of consent. The project was run across the county, and a judging panel of young people had a difficult choice in judging the merits of all the entries. One of the Beech adverts was awarded a runners up position for their informative and innovative clip advising young people how they can say ‘No’ if someone asks them to do something they don’t want to do.
Today Kirstin Lamb from Notts County Council and DCI Peter Quinn from Notts Police joined our assembly where the pupils shared their work, and then presented Y11 with a certificate of excellence for their work.
