Crime and Punishment Day

Crime and Punishment Day


Pupils at Mary Astell Academy had visitors in holding sessions for our Crime and Punishment Day. We had a current prisoner and a prisoner officer in for an insight into prison life. Pupils were also able to experience prison life a replica of a prison cell. Alongside this, we had a session on county lines and knife crime. The Samantha's Legacy team visited and spoke about the legacy of Samantha who was a tragic victim of knife crime. We also had a knife crime VR headset session with the Northumbria Violence Reduction Unit (more information on this session is in our post here). A domestic violence key change session was able to educate pupils on the issues with domestic violence. Pupils and staff also attended a first aid session too as part of the Crime and Punishment Day.
