KS3/4

Super You, Super Me

Our popular Super You, Super Me (SYSM) disability equality for earlier key stages has been adapted to incorporate suitable discussions and debates to engage young people in challenging stereotypes and to celebrate abilities and to encourage dialogue to enable them to take forward the ideas of equality into the world.  Please contact us to discuss.

SYSM – helps us all to find the superpowers we all possess – kindness, acceptance and understanding – as well as our own unique gifts.
