Racist and Religious Hate Crime - Schools Project Resources: This set of resources can be used by teachers to explore the issue of Racist and Religious Hate Crime. The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS), National Union of Teachers (NUT) and the Anthony Walker Foundation (AWF) have worked together to produce the resource pack and pupils from schools in the North West acted out, and helped to devise, the dramatised scenarios of racist and religious incidents included in the presentation. They provide starting points for discussion and are based on real life experiences of the young people who took part in the project.

Classroom activities and guidance for teachers are also available in PDF format which are designed to increase pupils' understanding of hate crime and prejudice and enable them to explore ways of challenging it.
