Dragons Den!

Lancashire Constabulary’s Prevent Team have been leading a project with pupils from schools within the Borough.
These pupils are involved in the Prevent programme (exploring cohesion with a particular focus on extremism) and are representing our school in designing products that are going to heighten people’s awareness of these issues.

Ben Hosker (yr 10)
Andrew Robinson (yr 9)
Rebekah Crockford (yr 10)
Jade Meikleham (yr 10)
Olivia Robertson (yr 9)
Abbie Smith (yr 9)
Sophie Rawsthorne (yr 10)
Victoria Lodge (yr 10)
Chloe Kenyon (yr 10)

The pupils were then invited to present their ideas at a Dragons Den style event where a panel of judges critiqued pupils project ideas and approved the funding for delivery of their action plan.

Ian Brown the director of Graham & Brown was so impressed with the product ideas of the pupils from Darwen Vale he decided to back our project with a £1000.

Ian Brown came into school on Friday 18th July to speak with the team.
