Knife crime & youth violence talk

Year 6 Eagles were visited by Alison Cope today, the mother of Joshua Ribera who was murdered in 2013.

Alison spoke to the Year 6 children today to discuss the choices young people can make before the consequences.

Since Joshua’s death Alison has worked tirelessly to share her son’s life and death story to educate young people about the real consequences of youth violence.

Alison has worked with West Midlands Police, Staffordshire Police, Hertfordshire Police and Crimestoppers along with keynote speaking and lecturing at Birmingham and Nottingham universities.

Alison touched on various issues including:

– Knife crime
– Youth violence

Thank you to Alison for having this discussion with our children and parents.
