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.
What teachers say?
Excellent child friendly workshop dealing with some really big issues. The children were really engaged and it made them think about an issue they had never heard about before’, Y5 Teacher, St John’s CE Walham Green Primary
‘How impressed am I? I was looking for a way of educating our pupils without frightening or trivialising the subject matters. The balance was perfect - Thank You!’, Y5 Teacher, William Penn Primary
‘Fantastic workshop- very interactive and pupils learned and laughed and questioned and thought deeply all at the same time’, Y6 Teacher, Queen’s Manor Primary
‘The students were really engaged thanks to a dynamic presenter who used clever role-play to raise the students' awareness of a difficult issue. The end of the session checked their understanding of signs to check for identifying slaves in a situation they may witness. A powerful presentation. A very interesting aspect of slavery - different perspective - opens your eyes’, Y6 Teacher, Godolphin & Latymer
‘A fantastic session. Extremely educational and fascinating content. Dmitry was amazing. He struck the perfect balance between entertaining and serious. The children loved him. Very worthwhile’, Y5 Teacher, St Francis de Sales
Accompanying Lesson Plans
Key Stage 2 Modern Slavery Lesson Plans
These lesson plans have been paid for by the Clewer Initiative and free to download to accompany our workshops on modern slavery. For even more lesson plans head to modernslaverylessons
This lesson helps children understand that they are a very important part of the fight against slavery. It introduces, through history, how slavery adapted over the years and what it looks like today. It includes a focus on the idea that today, modern slavery is often ‘hidden behind closed doors’ but also can be seen on our streets ‘hidden in plain sight’.
This lesson considers stories of children held in modern slavery in the UK. The cases are based on true stories and will inspire children to stay safe, whilst not scaring or shocking them. In each scenario the children are protected and rescued, showing children who they can turn to when they are worried or in danger.
This lesson plan is a great way to encourage children to see a future without any form of slavery. The Clewer Initiative and Just Enough Group believe that we can have a slave free world. Children in this lesson will write a newspaper article about how the world managed to achieve just that!
