When you work in a school environment it is very important to know the ways in which children can suffer prejudice and discrimination. Very often they can happen due to ignorance, such as assuming that all people in wheelchairs have learning difficulties. It is a sad fact that peoples assumptions about groups of individuals very often lead to discrimination about that group.
Different types of prejudice include:
Racism – discrimination based on skin colour or race
Sexism – based on gender
Religion – each different religion may feel that their faith is superior
Social – this is usually directed towards the poor
Homophobic – Directed towards gay people

a schools refusal to accept a wheelchair student due to a lack of ramps or a group of pupils not letting a another pupil join in because of their skin colour.
Indirect discrimination - This is harder to spot and generally occurs because of a lack of planning. An example of this is the boy refused entry on his first day at school in 2009 because of his cornrow braids which the school considered a “badge of gang membership”. The high court called this indirect racial discrimination.

Prejudice and discrimination can affect CYP in a number of ways that can adversely affect their performance in school. CYP that experience these factors generally suffer from low self esteem feeling that they are being picked on and outnumbered. This can lead to a lack of enthusiasm for academic work which affects their standing in class leading to depression and sometimes they have a tendency to be angry and “lash out” at their tormentors getting them, not the tormentor, into trouble. The feeling of exclusion leads to confusion and is not very nice and teachers should look out for this happening.

    This is when children are unable to participate in school curriculum or activities because their disability, race or gender is not catered for. Such as not getting a place at school or in an extra-curricular club because they have Special Education Needs or not being allowed to observe an important date or celebration in their culture.

Such as a group of children playing ring-o-roses not letting someone join in because their hands are dirty or a child not being picked for a team in P.E because they don’t run very fast or cannot catch a ball easily.…

    Within the educational setting there are many pieces of legislation that must be adhered to. One of these is the disability and equality act 2010, this piece of legislation ensures that pupils who are disabled or have a mental illness are given the right to attend education and learn and achieve without being discriminated against or excluded. For example if I have a pupil arrive in a wheel chair I will have to make reasonable adjustments for that pupil i.e. move the whole class to the ground floor or see if they could attend an alternative course but in most colleges now a days they will have a lift so I will have to rearrange tables and chairs to accommodate for that pupil.…

    Indirect discrimination is when there’s a practice, policy or rule which applies to everyone in the same way, but it has a worse effect on some people than others. The Equality Act says it puts you at a particular disadvantage. For example a health club only accepts customers who are on the electoral register. This applies to all customers in the same way. But Gypsies and Travellers are less likely to be on the electoral register and therefore they’ll find it more difficult to join and this could be indirect discrimination.…
