Graham Thomas at Teacher adviser PSHE/Advisory and Inspection Services

On the whole a really useful pack. I feel that this pack is sufficiently flexible for schools to use in a variety of ways and that it has a useful crossreferencing section at the back which schools will be able to use as a planning tool to audit where modules can be added to provide a comprehensive programme. I was really interested in 4 main activity sheets. One was the every vote counts as this is a difficult and often dry topic to teach. I was also very interested in the helping hand and you, me and everyone sections as it gives a really good perspectrive on diversity considering the problems we are witnessing at present regarding race relations.
