Education Services

The Anthony Walker Foundation (AWF) has developed a range of activities and presentations for schools, raising awareness on issues of bullying, discrimination, racism and all forms of hate crime.

The activities on offer include whole year group assemblies, and smaller class group sessions, both of which and can include specifically designed learning materials developed in partnership with the National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), Liverpool Football Club and AWF. The learning resources were created to assist schools and educational establishments meet curriculum areas using core lessons and activities for key stages 2, 3 and 4.

Key
Concepts

Some of the key questions which our activities answer include the following:

  • What is hate crime and why is it essential that all young people should understand its nature and seriousness?
  • What are effective ways of preventing and dealing with bullying and oppressive behaviour within schools?
  • How can pupils and school staff work together to ensure the school environment is safe for all and pathways are created to make support accessible if needed?
  • How can teachers enable pupils to take positive steps in co-operation with others to deal with the issues of prejudice they encounter in their everyday lives?

Our activities lend themselves to the implementation of recommendations outlined in the Home Office’s ‘Challenge it, Report it, Stop it’ hate crime action plan (2012) which identified the need for ‘challenging and changing the attitudes and behaviours that lead to hatred, and intervening early to stop tensions or incidents escalating.’ Additionally, it prevents learners from displaying prejudice and reinforcing negative stereotypes which left unchecked potentially lead to discriminatory behaviour and attitudes.

All our sessions will challenge prejudice and stereotypes and inform young people to value difference, welcome communities and cultures, practise equality and tackle discrimination through direct positive participation and engagement.
