Black Lives Matter

 “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”  Nelson Mandela


George Floyd’s death and the events that have followed have left many shocked and saddened that such injustice and inequality are still present in today’s world. Although extremely sad, it has further highlighted the importance of the fight against systemic racism. As a school, it is critical that we use our voice to help our children understand the role we play in promoting equality and eradicating racism. As educators, it is our duty to help the next generation to be more enlightened than the one they follow.

At Julian’s Primary School, we strive to be an anti-racist community with a culture where people can ask questions, and grow and improve their understanding of BAME culture and history. We want to develop a culture that challenges racism effectively and breaks down unconscious bias in our community.  As a school, we believe that equality is non-negotiable and will be looking into our curriculum to ensure that all people in our community are represented and celebrated.


"In a racist society it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist"  Angela Davis


As teachers and parents, it is also our responsibility to engage in positive and open discussions about race and racism with our children. It is important to understand that racism and race is not a one-conversation topic, and as a result we will not have all of the answers. However, by engaging in open discussions we are able to lay the foundations that move us towards racial equality.
