Red is the leader
And the feeder
It’s prepared to attack
Whatever comes upon her.
Red is strong,
Like England’s anthem song.
Colours that bring red down
Are never nice – they turn things upside down.
Red is the leader of the rainbow,
The other colours are zero.
Everyone is equal
Vivacious and happy
Remarkable and special
You are you
Courage is the key
Our community believes
Love is better than hate
Our desire is to be
Unique and free to be who we want to be
Right rules, wrong drools!

Racism, sexism, that’s just wrong,
Be more like Shane Long!
Stop it now,
No more rows.
Diversity’s the key,

We’ll stop it with our might

Kick it out

Equality is a hero.
Equality is the best,
It stands out from the rest!
I really like to watch and play football because it is really tense and exciting. It is a team game, so you need to work together. When you show off your tricks and skills to go on and score a goal it is an amazing feeling.
Football is my favourite sport and playing it is a pleasure. if you go to a match the atmosphere is electric – even more so if your team wins a trophy!
My favourite footballers are Firmino, Mané and Salah because they are influential and exciting to watch.
England is a really good team and I’ll love it if they win the world cup. I hope I grow up to be an England player.
England are red,
They’re always ahead.
No matter where they are,
Their spirit’s never dead.
Red is at the start of the rainbow,
The captain, the hero.
Sexism, racism – they are all zero!
We are together forever,
Whenever colours speak loud!
Dare to dream,
Without being unseen.
Be a lighting beam,
And don’t be mean.
There’s no one to blame,
For we’re not all the same.
Shout it out,
That we dare… to… dream!
Discrimination is bad because it makes people extremely upset and can effect them in terrible ways.
Everyone deserves equality – to be cherished for who they are, not who you want them to be.
Nobody should be discriminated against – what have they done that could possibly hurt you?
Before you discriminate, think about this: Why am I doing this and what have they done to deserve it?
