The Anne Frank Trust is a UK wide programme with organisation centres around the country, including the North East. They partner with schools, local authorities, the criminal justice sector and others to deliver educational programmes alongside acclaimed exhibitions to young people in a variety of settings. Free To Be brings an innovative anti-bullying element to the schools programme, the sessions are highly topical – reflecting current hate-related bullying issues faced by young people today. The programme uses peer education to encourage the development of pupils’ critical thinking. Workshops look at issues such as Islamophobia, sexism and homophobia. Older pupils work with a filmmaker to develop their own ideas and skills into a short film on anti-bullying. Primary pupils have a day of anti-prejudice workshops and a day working with a group of 6-10, pupils helping them to deliver their ideas and concepts into their own assembly delivered to their peers.
