Trinity Partnership with HMP-NOT-4-ME

29th November, 2016

Wakefield Trinity Community department are looking forward to delivering the HMP NOT-4-ME package to primary schools in 2017.

The partnership between Wakefield Trinity and HMP NOT-4-ME was set up in October to deliver an exciting package to Primary schools looking at Fundamental British Values (FBV) through, Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Education (SM SC).

HMP NOT-4-ME brings a real life replica Prison Cell to your School along with a morning of education and understanding of the consequences of choices and behaviour. This education involves life lessons, making good choices and conforming to moral and social responsibilities, critical for children to achieve their best life chances.

The pupils become prisoners for the morning, wearing prisoner’s uniforms and conform to prison rules. Children learn about the rule of law, democracy and protecting their liberty. Children can be arrested at only 10 years of age! HMP NOT-4-ME explains the law and how to protect themselves in life and in the online world.

Not only is the day unique, fun and informative it covers some of the requirements under section 78 of the Education Act (2002). In addition it also covers elements of The Prevent Duty which is a legal obligation under section 26 of the CT and Security Act 2015.
Children do a Prison Break after lunch and have an exciting afternoon of Primary Rugby League.

Wakefield Trinity community coaches show Children the value of Primary Rugby League which empathises that all players play all the time, regardless of gender, race, faith or those without faith.

Primary Rugby League for most children is their first experience of Rugby League and is a step towards a lifelong involvement with the sport and physical activity. Coaches focus on the ethos of fun, enjoyment and development.

Primary Rugby League has many important life lessons as well as promoting exercise and a healthy lifestyle. Respect, tolerance and teamwork are key traits of the game whilst conforming to rules. We are all subject to rules in life whether in the classroom, the law or on the rugby field and respecting rules is paramount in our delivery.

This fantastic opportunity will be offered to years 5 and 6 in primary schools and is set to be booked up quickly. Included in the experience will be a complimentary match day ticket for each child to attend a 2017 Wakefield Trinity home game at the Belle Vue Stadium. During the game at half time each participating School will receive their certificates and parade of honour to promote their Schools.
