Our work is all about empowering and protecting children. So it makes sense that we're also passionate about making sure children in the UK know about the brutal effects war has on millions of their peers – which is why we’ve developed some excellent teaching resources for schools to use.
Our exciting range of free teaching resources are in line with the national curriculum and relevant to multiple subjects.
Created for Key Stage 3 and adaptable to other age ranges, they are easy to use lesson plans for teachers and students alike.
We also have a helpful fundraising pack for teachers and students who might be interested in raising money for War Child.
Unfortunately War Child staff are not in a position to make school visits. To be able to meet the demand for visits, we would need to spend money on staff who could play this role. And we have decided to prioritise our spending to support children and young people in the conflict-torn countries where we work.
But we love to hear from schools who have used our education materials or have fundraised for us – so feel free to drop us a note and send us your photos to Ash at War Child.
