Free teaching toolkit to improve integration in schools launched

Free teaching toolkit co-produced by migrant young people to improve integration and inclusion in schools

Children’s charity Coram has launched a new teaching toolkit which aims to increase understanding of the experiences of migrant children and young people to improve integration and inclusion in schools.

The ‘Belonging Toolkit’, co-produced by Coram’s Young Citizens programme, is aimed for young people from migrant and refugee backgrounds, and specialist educators from Coram Life Education, the leading provider of high quality Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education in UK primary schools.

The toolkit includes lesson plans, teachers’ guidance on immigration, and films and activities exploring the theme of belonging to help enrich school values including empathy for others and respect for diversity.

Designed for key stages 2 and 3 (ages 9-13), the toolkit supports British Values and Citizenship requirements in the curriculum.

Harriet Gill, managing director of education and wellbeing at Coram said: “In the wake of Brexit and concerns about divisions within an increasingly multi-cultural society, we need to examine the role of schools in creating a more cohesive, integrated Britain. By promoting empathy and inclusion, our new toolkit can help schools to strengthen their values and make a real difference in all pupils’ lives.”
