All the pupils from the Brades Lodge had the opportunity to watch a Loudmouth production call ‘Working for Marcus’. Working for Marcus is a powerful theatre in education programme on child sexual exploitation (CSE) including online sexual exploitation and abuse by individuals, organised groups or gangs.

It is apparent from all of the recent stories in the news and media that sexual exploitation and sexual grooming are serious and important issues for schools to address. Working for Marcus has been used in schools to raise awareness of child sexual exploitation and to train professionals since 1998. 

This was a difficult subject for our pupils to tackle and the vast majority responded very well and were a credit to the school.
