The Adoptables' Schools Toolkit
Enable your students to understand the issues facing adopted children at school. Increase staff awareness of behavioural issues that can affect young people from the care system.
Enrich your school's values, helping children to empathise with others and respect diversity.
Enhance Personal, Social, Health and Economic education by focusing on the PSHE Association's programme of study: Relationships, Health and Wellbeing, and Living in the Wider World.
Address new statutory requirements for Relationships Education by including families of many forms to help ensure that there is no stigmatisation of children that have different support structures, such as looked-after children and those who have been adopted.
The Adoptables' Toolkit tackles the issues adopted young people experience at school, and helps to raise awareness of these challenges amongst both students and staff members.
This FREE Toolkit includes lesson plans, teachers' guidance, films and activities for KS2 and KS3, all clearly linked to learning opportunities included in the PSHE Association Programme of Study (the PSHE programme of study regularly signposted to by the DfE).
The Adoptables' Toolkit was co-produced with Coram Life Education and Coram's Adoptables peer network, and funded by the Queen's Trust.
