Plymouth Raiders star Ben Eaves visited Alternative Complementary Education (ACE) Services in Martins Gate, Bretonside.ACE Services provides full time education and support for up to 300 pupils aged four to 18, who are no longer in mainstream schools. Ben gave a presentation on discrimination and bullying to some of our Key Stage 3 and 4 pupils, to target any individuals that might be involved.

“Ben spoke about how he was picked on at school for his height, saying how difficult it was to be different.

“It was good for the kids to know what people go through - the pupils here are removed from mainstream school so they are a good audience for this project to target.

“Often they have had to leave schools because of bullying or behavioural issues.

“The session will help to support the curriculum in PHSE lessons and it’s another demonstration for the kids to latch onto, its great for people like this to come in and encourage and motivate our young people.”
