There are different types of discrimination

There are different types of discrimination, such as direct and indirect discrimination. Direct discrimination can occur when a child or young person are not allowed access to school activities or part of the curriculum due to their disability, race or gender. For example, a pupil with a disability is not allowed to participate in a school activity because of their disability, or might not let a child join in due to their race or gender.
Indirect discrimination can be more difficult to spot, due to practices and actions are put into place without thought to those with specific circumstances. A child will not be directly targeted at but will be unable to partake due to their private circumstances For example, a school will go on a trip to visit underground caves where students must wear a hard hat, that will indirectly discriminate towards a student who wears a headscarf/hijab.
