Great performances and workshops delivered by Loudmouth to our year 8s and 9s.
It is always great to be provided with these opportunities for students to enrich their knowledge of child exploitation by seeing the scenarios being played out with real life performances. What made this performance even better was the workshops that followed that provided students the opportunity to delve deeper and explore how the characters were groomed using the situations that occur in the performance, in the workshop.
This allowed our students to show empathy towards the characters, a greater understanding not to victim blame, identify the signs of grooming and understand where they can seek support.
“The workshop was helpful as I was able to see a real-life example of an issue that happens quite often in society”
“It was nice that we were able to talk to the characters as we were able to understand their perspectives”
“It was informative and a good reminder”
“It was funny, engaging and a creative way to learn"
“The workshop was really knowledgeable, and I now feel more informed about child exploitation and understanding how this works in county lines”
“Today I learned the consequences of grooming and how vulnerable people are exploited”
‘Through the performance, students were able to exercise empathy’
'The sessions were well-timed, informative in a short period of time and an engaging way of reminding pupils on the dangers surrounding CSE and CCE'.
"Really enjoyed the workshop from loudmouth yesterday, I found them really enthusiastic and informative about real life situations. The students found the performance really entertaining. Was interesting when they were having group sessions so discuss more in depth about certain topics and their understanding around it".
