MP Margaret Hodge visits JRCS
Students Sukhdeep, Nojus, Joy, Zoe, Catarina, Grace and Caitlin taking GCSE Citizenship decided to base their action around sentencing in the UK and the way criminal courts sentence offenders. As independent learners they invited the local MP Margaret Hodge into school to discuss the issues surrounding sentences in UK prisons and wanted to find out the government stance on this issue.
The meeting took place at Jo Richardson School and students had an opportunity to give a summary of their action and finding and then a Q&A session took place. Students found this experience worthwhile and felt proud to have been heard.
