Monday 15th June 2020 – message sent to parents/carers
Dear Parents and Carers,
I write to thank the parents who have shown an interested in forming a discussion group on broadening our curriculum. The school teaches many aspects of black history, integrated through our entire curriculum, but we recognise more can be done. These are the first steps in starting a wider conversation as anti-racism is for everyone!
The impact of the Black Lives Matter movement has caused many open discussions and it is through open dialogue that we will play our role in dealing with issues of race and racism in school and society. We recognise that this important issue should be discussed openly no matter how uncomfortable or difficult.
As a school we actively stand against racism and find acts of hate, racism and discrimination totally unacceptable.
If you would like to have your voice heard and be part of shaping what your children are taught please contact the school office and I will be in contact with further details of when and how we will meet as a group.
