SCARF 2  - A programme of work that can be used to tackle prejudice

These materials were originally developed as part of the SCARF (Schools Citizenship / Cohesion Anti-Racism and Football) School linking project which used football as the vehicle for engaging young people from Key Stages 2, 3 and 4 in anti-racism and multicultural education.

They have been updated to allow consideration of other forms of prejudice including, but not limited to, disabilism, sexism, Islamophobia and homophobia and can be incorporated into British Values, SMSC and PSHE areas of the curriculum across Key Stages 2, 3 and 4.

This resource can be used in a number of ways, including:

1. As a standalone unit of for work for Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE), for Schools or Youth Clubs.

2. As a school Linking project via PSHE.

3. As a school Linking project via both PSHE and Sport.

4. As a school Linking project via both PSHE and Art activities.

5. As part of a school linking / transition project, with the final activity taking place at the High School. 

Pupils form many of their opinions and develop their views in line with the society in which they live, and are heavily influenced by their peers and others.

These materials seek to examine and explore these views:

  • To enable pupils to think about the consequences of their views and their actions.
  • To help them develop respect and tolerance towards others – including people of all faiths, races and cultures. These are key elements in promoting "fundamental British Values".

More specifically these materials seek to:

  • Promote a better understanding amongst young people of cultural diversity and different faiths both locally and nationally.
  • Help young people understand the effect of their actions and attitudes towards other people.
  • Enable young people to recognise the nature and consequences of discrimination, bullying and aggressive behaviour and how to challenge such behaviour appropriately.
  • Develop communication, examination, participation and enquiry skills amongst young people.
