This resource has been designed for both primary and secondary teachers for use in the classroom to work with young people and educate about Islamophobia.
The resource provides background information outlining the reality and impact of Islamophobia on both young people and wider society; starting points to help educators to ensure that they are creating the right environment for the work to take place; and activities for educators to run with young people.
The activities have been developed in partnership with young people and tested in classrooms throughout the UK.
The resource also provides guidance as to the steps that schools can take to help young people report incidences of Islamophobia and respond appropriately to both perpetrators and targets, in order to create settings where all young people feel safe and able to achieve.
The aims of this resource are to:
Outline the moral and statutory duties on schools to engage in work on Islamophobia
Share good practice approaches and activities to educate young people about Islamophobia
Support schools to respond effectively to incidents of Islamophobia
Provide links to further sources of information and support
