Following Ben’s death, The Ben Kinsella Trust was set up to fulfil Ben's legacy in the following ways: To raise public awareness of knife-crime To educate children of all ages of the consequences of knife crime and the devastating effect that it has on families With 2018 being the most violent year of knife-crime of the last decade, and 2019 showing little sign of improvement so far, tackling knife-crime, especially among young people, has never been so important. School 21 School 21 is a pioneering new 4 to 18 school in Stratford, East London, for children from all backgrounds. The mission of School 21 is to empower young people to take on the world. Through a rich curriculum of ‘head’, ‘heart’ and ‘hand’ they want children knowing a lot, understanding themselves and making things happen. Their ‘dialogic approach’ to teaching helps children learn through talk and learn to talk and give everyone a voice. Over the past few years, School 21’s students have built mechanical toys bursting with scientific craft, spoken out about human rights, ran campaigns to improve the biodiversity of Stratford and charted local history through photographs and poetry, just to mention a few of their achievements. This is all down to the innovative and inspiring principles, methods and curriculums at School 21, which will be discussed more at this event. First Give First Give work in partnership with secondary schools to help young people to give their time, tenacity and talents to improve their local communities. Their vision is to help build a new generation of motivated and switched-on young people who want to use their skills to support local charities and make the lives of others in and around their communities better. Through the ‘First-Give Programme’, they encourage entire year groups of students to identify social issues in their areas and engage with local charities that address them. The students will then have the opportunity to compete for £1,000 of grant money. Teams will do this by advocating for their charity in a school competition - the First Give School Final. The scheme of work promotes many aspects of Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural education within secondary schools and is proving to be an inventive, engaging and inspiring way for young people to give back to their local communities.
