But MVP is different to other schemes.
It works because young people become the trainers and influencers within a school. No longer are teachers the only ones who manage negative behaviour. With MVP it is the pupils themselves who play just as big a part and ensure good behaviour exists within their school and local community. The programme helps reduce the number of temporary and permanent school exclusions by providing young people with leadership skills and challenging unacceptable behaviours.
MVP can help change a school’s culture, so pupils reflect on their behaviour and the impact upon others. We want to nurture young people and develop their character so they have high levels of empathy, resilience and confidence. It’s about healthy mind and healthy body.
The VRU has coordinators in place to work with teachers to embed MVP within their schools. Mentors in Violence Prevention helps schools meet the requirements laid out by the Department for Education and OFSTED to keep children safe, develop their personal wellbeing and equip them with the broad range of skills needed in adult life.
If you are interested in exploring the possibility of integrating an MVP programme in your school then don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We look forward to hearing from you.
