About Us

Welcome to The Respect Programme website. An online resourceproviding ready-made lesson plans on issues such as citizenship,prejudices, extremism, staying safe online, Britishness and more!

The plans are available to teachers in secondary schools & colleges throughout Leicester and Leicestershire to download for FREE.

They aim to encourage young people to understand & respect others, develop critical thinking skills (especially in avoiding the dangers that prevail online), and consider how to bring about change in a positive constructive way.

They can be used as a package or as stand-alone plans in different subject areas: eg Citizenship, PSHE, RE etc. Each plan is accompanied with various resources such as videos, web-links, scenarios, poetry, etc to make for an interactive & engaging classroom session on topics that may otherwise appear difficult to approach.

The material has been piloted by teachers in order to critically evaluate it.

In light of the recent change in the law, which makes it a statutory duty for schools to address such issues, we hope the material will help schools to meet this requirement as well as aid with meeting Ofsted and safeguarding guidelines.
