Anti-racism and race equality cannot be a side issue in the work of schools. The Black Lives Matter movement raises the same basic issues that were supposed to have been resolved following the tragic death of Stephen Lawrence in 1993. This extended course seeks to bring together and empower schools who want to be known for their genuine commitment to and active delivery of race equality.
This will be in three stages:
- an initial full-day masterclass in the summer term will upskill and resource participants so they are ready to lead an initiative in their school and set a challenging agenda to move forward delivery of anti-racism and race equality
- each school will receive online consultancy from a wellbeing adviser approximately midway between the first and final sessions to support school progress
- a final full-day session in the following spring term will re-gather participants to share in the outcomes of their work, so that all can benefit from the collective approaches and progress
