Knife crime lesson plans and resources

Our resources explore the real, lived experience of people affected by knife crime and youth violence

These PSHE lesson plans for schools teaching KS2, KS3 and KS4 are based on video testimony from ex gang members, victims and offenders. The lessons include all the worksheets, activities and film that you need to run a successful lesson.

We have worked with respected PSHE practitioners to ensure the lessons are appropriate and suitable.

We would like to extend our thanks to Lorraine King, Health Improvement Adviser for PSHE (primary), Islington Health and Wellbeing Team, School Improvement Service, who gave feedback and advice on the the KS2 extension lesson on love and loss, ‘Communicating the impact of knife crime’.
