Race and Religion

Working with schools we want to challenge misconceptions, stereotypes and negative attitudes in society and to promote integration within and between all our communities.

Respect, equality and diversity are key features in a well-planned PSHE education programme. A safe and respectful classroom can give pupils the opportunity to reflect on how each individual's behaviour, attitudes and biases affect others and teach them how to recognise and challenge prejudice, stereotypes and discrimination.
