Fly The Flag at your school

We’d love your school to join us in the campaign to promote and celebrate the human rights we all share – you can use our resources throughout the year.

On 10th December we celebrate Human Rights Day, which marks the anniversary of the ratification of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Join Fly The Flag every year on 10 December with assemblies, lessons, campaigns and creative activities – maybe you’ll make your own flags, write poems or songs, create short films, hold an exhibition or create performances? Find resources below to support your school’s Fly The Flag activities.

Don’t forget to share your activity with us at #FlytheFlag

Creative Resources for Schools

Our ambition is that every school in the UK has the opportunity to Fly The Flag and discuss human rights with their pupils.

Download our free assembly resources and creative education packs, for ages 5 – 18, to support the creative delivery of assemblies and lessons exploring human rights in your school.

2022

2022 focused our attention on Article 20, the right to protest.

The resources, designed for primary and secondary schools, included key information about Article 20 and Fly The Flag, discussion questions and practical dance and drama task ideas. They also gave explanation of specific/ complex terms, playlist suggestions and additional resources.

2021

In 2021 we focused our attention on Article 19 – the right to freedom of opinion and expression.

The resources set you up to deliver short and interactive sessions in assemblies or focus time.

2020

2020 focused our attention on Article 25, which articulates the basic right we all have to food, shelter, healthcare, social services and security.

The resources below set you up to deliver short and interactive sessions in assemblies or focus time. Designed for Primary and Secondary, you will find 15 minute sessions tailored to your student’s existing knowledge.

If you are able to deliver one of these sessions on 10th December to mark Human Rights Day that’s fantastic – let us know how it goes! Otherwise they can be delivered at any point in the year and adapted on your students’ needs.

General resources

Introduce your students to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and the Fly The Flag project.

Designed with teachers in line with the English Curriculum, the resources link to Citizenship, PHSE and SMSC learning aims and include short films, images and interactive activities for groups of all sizes.
