RE resources tackle racism and prejudice

A suite of free teaching materials to help teachers of religious education plan and provide learning around racism and prejudice has been launched.

The resources, which are relevant to RE in key stages 2 and 3, include units of work such as “What can be done to reduce racism? Can religion help?”, and “Racism: what can be done to reduce its harmful impact? What can religions do to play their part in a more just society?”.

There are also film and book reviews – from Malcolm X and Gandhi, to the Life of Pi and The Windrush Betrayal. The concept of respect is explored, too, with links made with art and British Values.

The resources have been developed by RE Today and the National Association of Teachers of RE (NATRE). The project was initiated by the Free Churches Group and Methodist Schools and funded by the Westhill Endowment.
