Black Lives Matter and
Allen Edwards Primary School
At Allen Edwards, we were all appalled by the events that led up to the Black Lives Matter movement and we fully support the on-going work needed to eradicate racism and obtaining an equal society with equal opportunities for all.
Allen Edwards is a diverse community consisting of almost 20 different ethnicities and speaking over 30 different languages. We have always challenged any form of racism, and other forms of discrimination, and we will continue to tackle any forms of prejudice. We are very proud of our school and local community and fully support the Black Lives Matter movement.
As a school community, we have developed our curriculum over many years and it has been designed to reflect our diverse community so that all the children can see themselves and others positively reflected. However, there is still more that we can achieve and we will be meeting as a school to develop this further.
This term we have established working groups to:
Review our strategy and policy towards diversity,
Ensure our resources and curriculum represent the different ethnicities and cultures,
Increase the education of staff through a monthly book club focusing on literature around the black lives movement.
This will enable us to engage even further with our families so that all our children benefit from our rich cultural heritage.
The work that we are doing is a key part of our School Improvement Plan and has a high priority across the school. Our aim is to ensure that when our children leave Allen Edwards they will have a deeper understanding that Black Lives Matter.
New School Build
In September 2020, we moved into our new school building.
