The Deliberative Classroom is a project, funded by the Department for Education, to support teachers to lead knowledge based discussions and debates with students on topical issues relating to fundamental British values, citizenship and equality. The combination of written guidance, guided debates and three short films are designed to build teacher confidence in addressing controversial issues in the classroom. They demonstrate how to create a safe space for debating controversial issues, while avoiding polarisation and promoting fundamental British values.
