“We are currently working with Derby City and Derbyshire County Council to roll out a learning package in schools relating to Kayleigh’s Love Story.

“This is a film that was produced about a 15 year-old girl that was groomed online and subsequently raped and murdered in 2015.

“The learning package is being delivered to almost every school child aged 11-16 in the county and highlights key CSE messages.”
