Hate Crime

A resource package aimed at supporting schools to increase pupil’s awareness of different types of hate crime and prejudice, and how to challenge it.


The Crown Prosecution Service, National Union of Teachers, community groups and pupils from all over the country have worked together to produce these resources. Many of the themes covered are based on real-life experiences of young people and can be used as a starting point for discussing what can be difficult and sensitive themes. A range of activities are also included.

Please note that although the resources are reproduced on the right-hand side of this page for ease of access, you are advised to go to http://www.report-it.org.uk/education_support to ensure you are downloading the latest versions.
