“We should treat everyone the same whatever their cultural background.”
Would you agree?
If so, we challenge you to think a bit further. Why? Well, put simply, everyone is not exactly the same and so may not want to be treated the same as others.
Is there a need at your school to address issues like this? Are there attitudes which reveal ignorance, prejudice or unwitting racial bias? Are there stereotypes and set views about ethnic minority groups? Or perhaps there is a struggle at times to integrate and practice real equality for all cultural groups.

These are just a few of the comments from the Travelling the World workshop:
"Everyone really enjoyed the workshops - the children were still talking about it today and several parents said their children had been talking about them at home last night, which is really positive." (Head Teacher).
"Superb range of resources and artefacts to bring workshop 'to life'. A fabulous session THANK YOU!" (Nursery Teacher).
"Getting children to move around was excellent - the children will remember this journey. Don't change anything- presentation of workshop
was very interesting and informative . Well done!" (School Governor).
"The workshop was very well organized and thought out. The artefacts added greatly to the pupils understanding of different cultures and by moving around various groups they gained a good understanding of how Britain is a multicultural society. Thank you very much" (Class Teacher).
"Setting the quite difficult concept of diversity within a story makes the idea much easier for children to access. The differentiation across the age groups is excellent!
(Deputy Head Teacher).
"An excellent workshop, the children loved it and really enjoyed it all. It was the perfect length for the age group. The children talked about the workshop and remembered all about the different countries. Fantastic workshop - well delivered!"
(Reception & Year1 Teacher).
"Props were really nice, stimulating, good for children to visualise."
