Information for schools
Participation in the Street Law project can assist in covering the legal aspect of the citizenship curriculum. It is a programme designed to teach young people about their rights and responsibilities under the law and illustrate how the legal process works, while also encouraging aspirations to attend Higher Education.
We can work with pupils from Key Stage 2 to 4, and welcome new schools to take part.
What does it involve?
Typically the programme will involve a number of Street Law volunteers visiting a school to deliver workshop(s) to pupils. Activities are interactive and are suitable for between 20-30 participants (concurrent sessions can be delivered if volunteer availability allows). Half-day events can also be arranged, or Street Law sessions can be incorporated into existing 'experience' or 'citizenship' days that the school may offer.
Incorporating Street Law activities into University campus visits is also possible.
