Frome Vale Academy pupils have made a powerful film about racial and sexual discrimination, after their application to Unique Voice and Crimestoppers’s crime prevention film-making project was selected.
The academy chose Discrimination as a focus of the film, as it aligned with the launch of the academy’s Equalities, Diversity and Inclusion group and other work related to Frome Vale Citizenship.
Pupils were then invited to expand on the proposals through workshops, and chose to focus specifically on race and sexuality, as these were the topics they felt were most pertinent to them.
The Academy worked with Unique Voice over a number of days, writing the words and drawing the animations, which were then filmed. The film was showcased at the end of last term with Bristol’s Deputy Mayor, Asher Craig, as a special guest.
The Principal of Frome Vale Academy, Jan Saunders, said: ‘I am immensely proud of this piece of work in conjunction with Unique Voice. It epitomizes all the work we do at Frome Vale around citizenship and reflects our pupil’s understanding of these important issues.”
