Poverty Snapshot

Poverty Snapshot

Overview

Schools have a responsibility to tackle poverty and promote equality of opportunity. Teaching young people about poverty can empower them to understand the subject and its impact, motivating them to act within a school, community, or city.

Using the National Curriculum, we have linked as many opportunities as possible to deliver poverty through a range of different subject areas. These opportunities can be used to either deliver the topic as a stand-alone or through cross-curricular planning with a number of different subject areas depending on the focus of the school.

The suggested lessons allow you to broadly focus on topics linked to poverty using the 10 fundamentals and the five-step process. It's important to link these to youth social action and how learning can make a difference.

Each lesson plan lightly integrates the learning or practice of a specific life/employability skill, such as oracy, teamwork, reflection, and/or problem-solving. In addition, each lesson links learning to potential youth social projects that other young people have delivered to make a difference.

Diversity and inclusion help children learn to empathise with people who are different from them. It makes all young people better learners, allowing them to understand various subjects from multiple points of view. By having access to educational content, each child is able to fully participate in their own learning, which provides them with the skills and resources for later life. At each key stage, we have used the National Curriculum, providing links and examples of how inclusion and diversity can be delivered through a range of subjects or as bespoke lessons as part of the inspire and inform steps of Youth Social Action.
