Be the change

Through education, humility and open mindedness we will strive to raise the levels of understanding and knowledge of the inequalities in our society to better challenge and fight against them. It is vital that we work together as a community to support each other, and to say:

Black Lives Matter.


Recently we have experienced some of the largest protests for decades following the death of George Floyd.  We have no doubt that these events have affected many families and I know many within our community are keen to use their voices to show their support for the Black Lives Matter campaign.  We recognise that racism is experienced by people we care about; our families, networks and wider circles.  We will continue to use our voices to highlight injustices.  We will continue to be active as a school community, having a shared and long-lasting responsibility to be the change we wish to see.


Our Federation is entirely committed to fighting racism and prejudice in all and any of its forms, and to the active promotion of equality for all through education. We recognise the heightened distress caused directly to so many of our colleagues, pupils, families and community in the current situation. We are with you. We are determined to work together to make positive change and to create a just society for all. Without justice there will be no peace.
