Teachers and Practitioners

#LifeorKnife is for young people, parents and teachers.

Schools, teachers are key to starting a conversation with young people about the consequences of carrying a knife and how they can receive help or report. West Midlands Police have off the shelf ‘life or knife’ schools packs and lesson plans to help you do this, and a stop and search schools pack.

Please encourage parents to carry on this conversation at home.
