‘Black Lives Matter’
We are immensely proud of our community and how we promote and support inclusion and equality at St Saviour’s Schools, including current support of the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement.
The St Saviour’s Schools are committed to equality, inclusion and creating better lives for all our children. We are proud to teach the children about standing against racism and inequality through our curriculum topics and assemblies, for example, ‘black history month’ and the active role our children take as part of our Equalities Team (E-Team).
The current ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests have given us the opportunity to explore further and teach the children more about this important issue. Therefore, over the coming weeks teachers and staff will be supporting and educating the children using a range of resources and learning from our continued and established partnership with SARI (Stand Against Racism and Inequality), our schools E-Team, literature and stories, and other resources available to schools.
We will do this either in school with groups of children or via our online Learning Menus.
Thinking longer term, we recognise that there is always more we can do and therefore moving forward we plan to task the Ethos Committee of the Local Governing Board and some key school leaders to review our current provision. Over the coming months we will consider what we can do to enhance and improve the education we offer about this important area.
