  • Currently only secondary school pupils are taught about internet safety.

    Under the new proposals, online safety would be taught to all pupils from the age of five in England as part of their personal, social, health and economic education (PSHE), which includes drug awareness, bullying, sex education, healthy living and personal finance.

  • Thornbury Youth Centre, based at the Turnberrie's Community Centre, currently opens four nights a week Monday to Thursday, working with children and teenagers aged between 11 and 19.

    Mr Godwin said: "We operate a programme for various age groups. There is issue-based work like drug education and sexual health and also social projects."

    Despite the success of the youth centre during the week, people in Thornbury have long campaigned for the youth service to operate during weekends.
