Antisocial Behaviour

"Kick It" - Antisocial Behaviour

“Kick It” - Antisocial Behaviour DVD is designed and delivered by young people. It provides all the information on how antisocial behaviour can affect individuals and the community as a whole. We believe by providing children and young people with the facts on antisocial behaviour this will lead to a reduction in antisocial behaviour in local communities.

The DVD is approximately 6 minutes in length and delivers a powerful antisocial behaviour message for both boys and girls, covering topics such as the different forms of antisocial behaviour, why young people get involved and what individuals and communities can do to report and prevent antisocial behaviour.

Anti Smoking

"Kick It" - Smoking

Rather than producing a DVD on general drugs awareness, we have focused purely on the dangers of cigarette smoking. This is for two reasons. Firstly, we believe being offered cigarettes is the first opportunity children are given to find the wherewithal to be assertive in relation to potential problems with drugs. Secondly, quite simply, every year around 100,000 smokers die as a result of their habit. The two factors are not unrelated. In any event approximately 450 children start smoking every day in Britain and almost no-one starts smoking as an adult. The majority of people who take up smoking do so in adolescence.

"Kick It" - Smoking is approximately 5 minutes in length and delivers a powerful anti-smoking message for children of all ages. The DVD is suitable for Key Stages 2 & 3and considers: what is in a cigarette, how smoking can affect your health and performance at sport, the social and financial costs and peer group pressure. The accompanying notes are designed to augment the DVD material and provide teachers with ideas for classwork and extension activities, such as discussion/group work.

Anti Bullying

"Kick It" - Bullying

"Kick It" - Bullying is approximately 5 minutes in length and is suitable for Key Stages 2 & 3 . The DVD expertly introduces the corporate responsibility of sports culture into simple messages for tackling bullying in peer groups.

The anti-bullying DVD sympathetically challenges current notions of what constitutes bullying. Covering racism, what people laughingly refer to as disability, institutional and the more immediate forms of bullying for school children. The accompanying notes are designed to augment the DVD material and provide teachers with ideas for lesson plans, classwork and extension activities, such as discussion/group work.

London Bus have ensured that the standard of production has produced an unforgettable visual experience. So many well meaning videos fail to hit the mark with young people purely because they cannot compete with the sophisticated images that children are bombarded with on a daily basis.

Anti Binge Drinking

“Kick It” - Binge Drinking

Because sensible alcohol consumption is prevalent in numerous social settings, condemning drinking carte blanche is not a credible message to young people, so, rather than producing a DVD covering the usual information about alcohol, we have focused purely on the dangers of binge drinking. This is for two reasons. Firstly, we believe being offered alcohol is one of the first opportunities children are given to find the wherewithal to be assertive in relation to potential problems with drugs. Secondly, quite simply, every year around 30,000 people die from alcohol related illness. The two factors are not unrelated.

“Kick It” - Binge Drinking is approximately 10 minutes in length and delivers a powerful anti-binge drinking message aimed at children aged ten to sixteen and is therefore suitable for Key Stages 3 & 4. The DVD covers topics such as binge drinking effects, alcohol information and health issues, peer pressure and personal safety.

“Kick it" – Truancy

"Kick It" - Truancy DVD is designed and delivered by young people. It provides all the information on how truancy can affect your future prospects and chances in life.
