In this short film we see what happens when Grace visits Mead Community Primary School in Trowbridge to discuss her recent diagnosis of diabetes, and how it has affected her. Year 4 teacher Sarah Inman discusses with her class how Grace can deal with other children making fun of her and calling her a “teacher’s pet” because she has to eat extra meals to maintain her blood sugar level.

Talking Points” is Persona Doll Training’s professional development programme that gives practitioners the opportunity to reflect upon issues of diversity and inclusion that arise in everyday practice.

In this video we see staff from Holmleigh Nursery discussing how they would respond to a father saying: “I don’t want my son dressing up as a girl” and “We don’t see colour.”
