On Tuesday, 1st November from 4:45 - 5:45pm, we are being visited by the Alter Ego Theatre Group who will be performing a drama entitled "Chelsea's Choice" for our year 9 parents and carers.
The theatre group have been commissioned by the Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland Safeguarding Board, to produce a drama that raises awareness of child sexual exploitation (CSE), what makes a healthy relationship and how to stay safe on the internet.
"AlterEgo’s ‘Chelsea's Choice’ is an innovative and powerful production highlighting the very serious and emotional issue of child sexual exploitation. The production shows how young people, boys and girls, are groomed by adults for the purposes of sexual exploitation using various methods, ensnaring young people and eventually taking complete control and dominating their whole lives. The audience will gain a better understanding of the devastating impact that sexual exploitation has on a young person's life. This is a very useful and innovative way of raising awareness of the issues relating to sexual exploitation and reaching young people, giving them some skills and knowledge to be able to protect themselves from this form of abuse." – Sheila Taylor. National Working Group for Sexually Exploited Children and Young People.
