Age Group - KS2

We want children to understand that they are not surrounded by danger. This session is designed to help children understand the reason these things can happen and why. The main goal of the session is to help pupils understand that no religion supports violence, and that it is not the religions fault when a terrorist event happens and is blamed on religion. It also aims to remove the stereotypical thoughts or negative feelings pupils may have heard from their peers, social or main stream media and even, in some cases, their parents. It helps pupils understand how people can be radicalised and how to protect themselves and others from such behaviours. This workshop also helps your school meet the Prevent Duty.

Why this Workshop?

  • Terrorism is not just an Islamic phenomenon

  • Terrorist events in the UK are very rare

  • Radicalisation can happen to anyone of any age

  • Most grooming takes place online

  • Pupils need to recognise that someone who is convincing them to do something violent do not have their best interest in mind

They will Learn

  • Why humans have always fought 

  • The kind of things we have gone to war over 

  • The difference between War and Terrorism 

  • Why it isn’t religions fault that terrorist events happen (it’s the terrorist’s fault)

  • How every religion is peaceful

  • An extremist group in history (the Gunpowder Plotters)

  • How Guy Fawkes was radicalised

  • Nobody is born a terrorist  

  • How social media and lies can be used to brainwash young people/convince them to do something bad 

  • How you can change the world by using just your voice (not violence) 

Outcomes

We all want a better world for our children and with this style of learning and engagement it can be achieved! Yes the school can use of this work towards Ofsted but fundamentally we want the next generation to have the tools in their future to be able to make a kinda world that does not have these issues that have thrived under us.

Ofsted Inspectors are guided to consider the evidence that action is taken to raise awareness of children and learners in relation to a range of safeguarding matters so that children are able to understand, respond to and calculate risk effectively.

"We collate the feedback that we receive from children and send it to our schools to use as evidence in their Ofsted portfolios"

Schools should promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
