Get pupils involved in the Big Ask
ACT has joined with the Children's Commissioner, Dame Rachel de Souza to ask children and young people across the country about how the pandemic has affected their lives and about their hopes for the future. The survey will run from 19 April and the Commissioner will be presenting the views expressed directly to goverment.
ACT teachers have developed a Citizenship lesson for use with key stage 2, 3 and 4 pupils to introduce the survey and support children's rights to be consulted on matters that affect them and be listened to by those in power.
The Stephen Lawrence Day Foundation (SLDF) invite schools around the United Kingdom to play an important role in championing a Legacy of Change in honour of Stephen Lawrence in your school and the wider community. Join the Live Assembly - register here
