The Mark 10 Mission - The Good Shepherd
Two brand new liturgies to celebrate Jesus as 'The Good Shepherd ' In the Gospel Jesus says "The sheep that belong to me listen to my voice; I know them and they follow me." We want these liturgies to help children understand how they can hear the voice of God themselves. We pray that these liturgies help children encounter Jesus but we also hope that they build the confidence of teachers. In the reflection, there are simple steps given on how to encourage children to enter into silent prayer. The guided prayer time also gives an excellent model of how to lead this.

Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families - Anti-racism resources for schools
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.
