Nil by Mouth’s school workshops focus on raising awareness of the issues surrounding sectarianism within our society. Our interactive approach aims to draw out personal attitudes, views and experiences while encouraging people to challenge sectarianism in their own lives and in wider society. Our primary school workshops typically last approximately 90 minutes and are aimed at P6 and P7 groups.

Our workshop sessions are offered FREE OF CHARGE to all schools in Scotland. However, due to funded local authority partnerships from April 2022 to March 2023, priority will be be given to the following council areas; North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, West Dunbartonshire.

You can view the lesson plans for our primary workshops below. These are a rough guide only as we are flexible to areas of interest for specific classes and regularly update our materials.

Teachers are encouraged to use Nil By Mouth workshops and materials as a support resource for wider projects exploring the issue of sectarianism. Education on sectarianism can be approached through a variety of subjects such as Drama, Art, English, History, Religious and Social Studies. To support this we recommend using Education Scotland’s National Improvement Hub and searching for the term ‘sectarianism’.
