No Room for Racism - Allyship


No Room for Racism - Allyship

KS1/Foundation, KS2
Diversity, Fairness, Equality

The Premier League is committed to ending racism in football and wider society. Use this pack to teach pupils about the importance of allyship and what it means to be an ally. Play the film to hear from professional football players who celebrate cultural diversity in the game.

Pupils will learn that we can all play our part in helping to challenge racism and supporting others. Together we can make our communities fairer and make everyone feel welcome.
