Streetwise works nationally with Jewish schools and community organisations, enhancing the personal safety and personal development of young Jewish people to support their physical and emotional wellbeing. We are a partnership project between Maccabi GB and CST delivering programming to secondary schools, community organisations and youth movements across the UK.
Our programmes fall into 5 areas of work: Anti-Bullying, Online Safety, Personal Safety, Relationships & Sex Education and Leadership. Through these topics, Streetwise empowers and advises young people in a safe and informal environment, giving them the skills, knowledge and confidence to make educated positive decisions.
The following programmes can be taught to all secondary school students, for more age-specific programmes please scroll down.
Streetwise delivers Anti-Bullying sessions for young people in Reception to Year 6, as well as offering KS1 & KS2 assemblies.
With Anti Bullying Week taking place 14th – 18th November, Streetwise will be running its Anti Bullying Programmes throughout the month of November (but not exclusively). Streetwise is a core member of the Anti-Bullying Alliance.
The aims of this programme are:
• To define bullying
• For pupils to understand what bullying is and to recognise the different forms it may take
• To look at our own behaviour in relation to bullying
• How to respond to bullying
This relates directly to the following PSHE National Curriculum targets:
2. Preparing to play an active role as citizens
c) to realise the consequences of anti-social and aggressive behaviours, such as bullying and racism, on individuals and communities
3. Developing a healthy, safer lifestyle
f) that pressure to behave in an unacceptable or risky way can come from a variety of sources, including people they know, and how to ask for help and use basic techniques for resisting pressure to do wrong
4. Developing good relationships and respecting the differences between people.
a) that their actions affect themselves and others, to care about other people's feelings and to try to see things from their points of view
d) to realise the nature and consequences of racism, teasing, bullying and aggressive behaviours, and how to respond to them and ask for help
This assembly lasts 40 minutes.
This assembly can be run at any point in the year and is designed to help young people understand what discrimination and Antisemitism is and how they can report incidences they see on and offline.
