Changing Faces: A World of Difference

Lesson plans on challenging stereotypes around visible differences

Media Smart - laptop computer people pointing

In the UK today there are 86,000 children of school age who have a visible difference. Changing Faces found that almost half of children with an unusual appearance have experienced bullying based on how they look. And that only 3 in 10 young people would consider being friends with someone who had a visible difference, which explains why many children and young people who look different have reported experiencing isolation and loneliness.

The ‘A World of Difference’ key stage 2 and key stage 3 resources will:

  • help students recognise and challenge stereotypes of visible difference through examples, activities and discussion.
  • encourage students to develop understanding, empathy and celebrate difference.

The teacher guidance (including lesson plan) and accompanying slides will support the delivery of rights-based approaches to learning, as well as statutory RSHE content on respectful friendships/relationships, caring friendships, and online relationships/media.

PSHE Association Subject Specialist Bethan Miller says:
“We delighted to award our Quality Mark to A World of Difference from Changing Faces for Key Stages 2 and 3. These sessions explore the effects of stereotypes about visible differences such as scars, birthmarks or craniofacial conditions. The lessons are framed in a positive, empowering tone and invite all pupils to discuss how stereotypes perpetuated by the media can be challenged."
Changing Faces champion Sophie (18) says:
“Growing up, school was where I experienced the majority of the bullying and was often made to feel very isolated. This is why I think the resources Changing Faces provide can make such a difference and reduce the negative connotations that are often associated with looking different.”
