A new film resource ‘Roots’ has been added on 22nd March 2021. This is a beautiful and moving, 8 minute animation that tells the story of us all, whether we come from a family that’s stayed in the same area for generations, or have travelled half way round the world in search of somewhere safe to live. Possible concepts: Belonging, Migration, Home, Refugee
Gender Equality Charter Mark evaluation tool
DECSY, teachers and gender equality experts have developed and trialled a tool to enable a school to measure progress in tackling the effects that gender stereotyping still has on pupils in relation to both subject (and career) choices and as a root of sexual harassment and gender-based violence in schools and wider society. An off-line version of this tool is available here. Please read the instructions for this on our Gender Equality Charter Mark project page.
P4C Level 1 course content
P4C is an approach to learning and teaching which enhances children’s thinking and communication skills, boosts their self-esteem, and improves their academic attainment. Level 1 introduces theories and practice of P4C.
