The funding is ONLY available to schools that come under Nottingham City and Nottingham County Education Authority. It is available for 3 years from the 2019/2020 academic year and is for 50% of the total cost of your programme.
DARE will have been operating in Nottinghamshire for 25 years in 2020. Our current programme was introduced in September 2014 and is due for an update. The Nottinghamshire Chief of Police wants to tackle knife and hate crime issues .
We are in the process of significantly refreshing the DARE Primary Programme; once transformed it will be DARE 25. The core of the programme remains, but will include topics around risky behaviour and decision making on hate and knife crime.
We are making DARE Primary, our current programme, available to those schools that specifically want it, however we will be reviewing this in the future. Be aware however, that the 50% funding is not available for this course.
We have just completed the consultation phase of the process of updating the programme, which is still being put together. These pages will be updated weekly with information on progress, but we will have all new videos, scenarios and a new DARE Song!
We understand that knife and hate crime might sound scary, but please be assured, all of our material is age appropriate and we have worked hard with partners to create scenarios that are realistic as well as suitable for years 5 and 6.
DARE to be safe and healthy.
