A Pride month PSHE event for KS2

Hackney Picturehouse. Tuesday 4th June 2024 10:30 – 12:30, Sc1

This PSHE event takes pupils through a series of short films to explore what makes us all different. We will touch on some of the legally 'protected characteristics', specifically: race, sex, disability and sexual orientation and, through examples of characters in short films, discuss why we should celebrate what makes us unique. Pupils will have a chance to share their opinions, to think about what they are proud of and to feel empowered to be themselves.
