THE SOPHIE LANCASTER FOUNDATION

Primary Education

SOPHIE game packshotsThe Sophie Lancaster Foundation now has a Primary Resource Pack available for Key Stage 2 (years 3-6). This was made possible through funding from The Big Lottery Fund and was piloted in East Lancashire primary schools from September 2014 to December 2014. The resource is interactive and thought provoking and has been developed as a six week P.S.H.E. package, which can also be used to provide a variety of one hour sessions if preferred. The sessions challenge common preconceptions and enable pupils to explore their values and beliefs, and where they originate from, in a safe environment.

Subcultures and stereotypes are explored through character cards, task cards, images, vocabulary, videos, music, discussion, creative writing/artwork, role play and physical transformation. The content and structure enables a wide range of issue- based topics to be explored, including: how to respect equality and diversity in relationships; physical, mental and emotional well-being; how to recognise and manage emotions within a range of relationships; respect for self and others; rights and responsibilities; managing transition, bullying and hate crime and incidents.

The sessions support the development of critical thinking, empathy, increased awareness and understanding of difference and diversity, the consequences of actions for self and others and a deeper knowledge of cultural issues in the wider world.

Primary schools will be able to opt for one hour sessions, a full six week delivery package or attending a training day to enable them to deliver the resource themselves.

Time: 9:30 am - 4:30 pm
