Understanding criminal sentencing - resources for teachers

The Sentencing Council has published resources for teachers delivering the citizenship curriculum to key stage 3 and 4 pupils. These resources will help pupils develop an understanding of how criminal sentencing works in England and Wales and give them the opportunity to try sentencing for themselves through interactive scenarios. They include a lesson framework, an overview of the criminal justice system, infographics, a simplified sentencing guideline along with the sentencing scenarios. The resources can be downloaded here.
