On Wednesday 11th July Southend United Community & Educational Trust joined forces with Show Racism the Red Card for an assembly at Rochford Primary school.
Steve from Show Racism used the World Cup as a great example of how different cultures come together through the power of football.
They spoke about when Blues Manager Chris Powell played for England and on him being an ambassador for SRTRC.
The children learnt about the different forms of racism that can happen on and off the pitch.
To top the assembly off SUCET & SRTRC got everyone singing with their very own rendition of Three Lions.
“Its great to spread a positive message especially around an event as big as the World Cup” said Steve.
SUCET do a lot of work with Show racism the red card to help combat abuse in football.
This is all linked into their Premier League Primary Stars as a collapsed curriculum day, Primary Stars is one of the biggest programmes the Trust promotes.
PLPS uses the appeal of the Premier League and professional football clubs to inspire children to learn, be active and develop important life skills.
Available to every primary school in England and Wales, it inspires girls and boys aged 5-11 in the classroom, the playground and on the sports field.
Teaching materials cover subjects from English and Maths to teamwork and PE, with free to download activity ideas, worksheets, lesson plans, fun assemblies and exclusive videos.
Learning is connected to the real world of sport to enthuse pupils when tackling challenging PSHE topics such as resilience, diversity, self-esteem and fair-play.
