Curriculum materials based on the dangers of carrying knives and knife crime in general have been created for schools to use ahead of the summer break.

They have been produced by the Home Office and the PSHE Association and consist of hour-long lessons aimed at students aged 11 to 16, including real-life case studies of young people from the #knifefree campaign.

The materials also signpost young people towards support services and the #knifefree campaign website.

The campaign offers schools a series of posters (see image), too.

The resources complement existing lessons on knife crime that were developed by the Home Office and the PSHE Association in July last year and have since been downloaded around 14,000 times.
