Controversial issues in the Primary
How to tackle them?
There are several controversial issues identified by academics when teaching Religious Education in the
Family values – different types
Grief and loss
Tackling these issues!
As a teacher it is part of your role to tackle these issues carefully. Although you will not come across
all issues at one times, it is wise to be aware of all issues that could occur. It is important that
children are taught the difference between right and wrong, preparing them for later life. For
example; racism may not occur in a primary school however it is argued that it is important for
children to be made aware of the issue so they know not to make racist remarks.
However, some would argue that if you open the children’s eyes to these issues without them
having any previous knowledge of it, that you are opening a door to future racism.
There are many pedagogical approaches which can be applied to these issues, creating a calm and
inviting atmosphere for the children. There are 4 main ways in which it is argued racism should be
taught; antiracist education, multicultural education, community cohesion and British values.
