Resources for Primary and Secondary

Home > Unicef Teaching Resources > VotesForSchools

Free debate resource ‘Should Borders exist?’

The weekly debating and voting platform VotesforSchools is working again with Unicef, this time to ask the question ‘Should boarders exist?’ to tie in with Refugee week.
There are separate resources for KS1 Primary; KS2 Primary & Secondary; and are perfect for Rights Respecting Schools, Prevent and fundamental British values.

"We start the week with the VotesforSchools topic and make that the focus of the week. Every week we have a gold star stamp which references which Right that VoteTopic covers, and the kids track it themselves. It is brilliant"
