No Outsiders


At Darnhall, we use the No Outsiders scheme to:

  • Teach children about the Equality Act 2010 and British Values 
  • Reduce vulnerability to radicalisation and extremism 
  • Prepare children for a life in modern Britain
  • Teach children to be proud of who they are while recognising and celebrating difference and diversity 
  • Develop resilience in children 
  • Create a positive school ethos where everyone feels they belong 

The No Outsiders scheme uses a selection of 35 books, covering Early Years to Y6, selected to support primary schools to develop a curriculum response to the Equality Act 2010. The titles in this book pack encourage children to explore identities and focus on diversity as a whole.

Our aim is for children to leave primary school happy and excited about living in a community full of difference and diversity, whether that difference is through ethnicity, gender, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, age or religion.
