Summary "Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Kidscape, the national charity that works to challenge and prevent bullying, this book offers readers an insight into a collection of innovative projects currently running in schools to promote inclusion, tolerance and kindness. From a gay role model to a peer mentor, a dance workshop to a gardening club, an autism ambassador to a travelling gypsy theatre group, the ideas demonstrate how much we have to teach our children about inclusion, how much kindness matters, and how much of a difference schools can make to children who don't always feel they fit. Joining forces with well-known charities and celebrity supporters, these accessible, fun and effective projects are tackling issues such as bullying, homophobia, racism, and truancy, are supporting pupils who may feel isolated and excluded from their peer group, and are helping whole schools become happier, more successful settings. This book will provide inspiration to all educational professionals, parents and volunteers looking for creative and practical ways to help individual children fit in and feel happy in their class."--Publisher description.
