Modern Slavery


There are approximately 13,000 people living in slavery in the UK.  It is estimated that 1 in 5 of these are children.  Our workshops are an hour long for Years 5 & 6 to raise awareness of this issue.

Our workshops educate children on calculating risk, recognising unhealthy relationships and aspects of online safety, inspire children that “one person can make a change” and becoming an active global citizen.  Everything is age-appropriate using comedy, drama, games, role-plays and storytelling throughout. If your class has been inspired and you want to continue this work, you can sign up to to gain access to follow up lesson plans linked to the National Curriculum from English to Music.  Every child receives a certificate with the 5 signs of slavery and the number for the Modern Slavery Helpline. We encourage children to give individual feedback which we then collate and return to the school for use in their Ofsted portfolios.

The work compliments aspects of PSHE guidance, Healthy Schools London Bronze Award, SMSC, Ofsted Safeguarding and promotes British Values.


  • Health & Well­being: Pupils should be taught ways of keeping physically & emotionally safe.

"We introduce children to our 5 signs of slavery and how to report anything suspicious in a safe and managed way"

  • Relationships: Pupils should be taught how to recognise and respond to risky or negative relationships

"We invite the children to explore various stories and characters and identify potential risks including debt, lies, stranger danger and online safety"

  • Living in the wider world: Pupils should be taught about respect for self and others and about rights and responsibilities as citizens

"We encourage children to challenge stereotypes within society by using age appropriate examples of modern slavery such as Cinderella"


Inspectors are guided to consider the evidence that action is taken to raise awareness of children and learners in relation to a range of safeguarding matters so that children are able to understand, respond to and calculate risk effectively.

"We collate the feedback that we receive from children and send it to our schools to use as evidence in their Ofsted portfolios"


Schools should promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.

"We enable children to unpick the abolition of slavery (William Wilberforce), understand why the problem still exists and its legal implications"

What do teachers say?

Excellent child friendly workshop dealing with some really big issues. The children were really engaged and it made them think about an issue they had never heard about before’, Y5 Teacher, St John’s CE Walham Green Primary

How impressed am I? I was looking for a way of educating our pupils without frightening or trivialising the subject matters. The balance was perfect - Thank You!’, Y5 Teacher, William Penn Primary

‘Fantastic workshop- very interactive and pupils learned and laughed and questioned and thought deeply all at the same time’, Y6 Teacher, Queen’s Manor Primary

‘The students were really engaged thanks to a dynamic presenter who used clever role-play to raise the students' awareness of a difficult issue.  The end of the session checked their understanding of signs to check for identifying slaves in a situation they may witness. A powerful presentation. A very interesting aspect of slavery - different perspective - opens your eyes’, Y6 Teacher, Godolphin & Latymer

‘A fantastic session. Extremely educational and fascinating content. Dmitry was amazing. He struck the perfect balance between entertaining and serious. The children loved him. Very worthwhile’, Y5 Teacher, St Francis de Sales
