No Outsiders at Weaverham Forest
There are no outsiders in our school; to quote the South African social rights activist Desmond Tutu (2004), ‘Everyone is an insider, no matter their beliefs, whatever their colour, gender or sexuality’ (No Outsiders Project Team, 2010, ix).
We use the book, ‘No Outsiders in Our School: Teaching the Equality Act in Primary Schools’ by Andrew Moffat.
The No Outsiders resource includes lesson plans based on children’s picture books. The class discussion is child-led and offers opportunity for the children to make observations and consider the simple messages in the text, which link to the Equality Act in an age appropriate way. The table below outlines the texts used in each year group.
