Working with educational establishments and providers across Merseyside, the VRP aims to reduce serious violence among children and young people attending schools and colleges.
Our top priorities of work in the following year are to:
- Develop additional exclusion guidance for schools.
- Prototype the ‘Mentors in Violence Prevention’ programme across a selection of Merseyside schools.
- Develop guidance for schools when commissioning violence reduction activities.
- Fund restorative practice approaches for when a young person is at risk of permanent exclusion.
