The Anna Freud Centre has created a set of 10 free resources to help school staff understand the mental health impact of racism on children and young people, and to feel more confident in addressing related concerns. The resources will help schools build a whole-school approach to anti-racism. They cover topics including: • how to support students who have experienced racism • writing an anti-racism policy and reviewing existing policies • holding cultural exchange events • how staff can improve their knowledge and confidence in this area The resources were co-authored by the Anna Freud Centre and anti-racism experts Hon. Stuart Lawrence and BLAM UK. They can be worked through as a full set, but they can also be used individually, depending on which areas are current priorities for your school.

When it comes to how you create a video – what do you need to know? What’s the correct way to set them up? Where should you put the light source? What do you need to know about sound? Read on to find out what you need to know to set up and record your video straight to your smartphone.
