Three classroom lessons on identity, violent extremism and digital resilience created by the Community Safety Team at the London Borough of Waltham Forest. It is intended for use within upper KS2 classrooms, but could be adapted for lower KS2 and lower KS3 settings.

The resources include lesson plans for three teaching sessions, PowerPoint presentations for each teaching session and guidance on how to tackle frequently asked questions in open discussion. The scheme of work is most effective when all sessions are delivered but you may wish to deliver one or two if this is appropriate to your setting.
