We were appalled by the events that led to the death of George Floyd in America but we also know that the challenges that black people face are not exclusive to America and we must address systematic inequality in our own country and ensure that all people, irrespective of ethnicity, are treated equally and given the same opportunities. We care deeply about our own community and feel a huge sense of responsibility to ensure that everyone is provided with an outstanding education so that they have full choice and opportunity for the future. 

Challenging racism matters to us and we are fully committed to diversity and equality.  However, we are also acutely aware that it is not just about the words that we say but the actions that we take.  Mr Maurice has written a piece for the newsletter about how we have been developing our curriculum during the course of this year and the plans we have in place for English and History for 2020/21.  Student voice is always at the heart of our community and we will continue to have open and honest conversations with our students and the wider community.  Ms Nylinder, our librarian, is ensuring that as she is building our new school library, it is inclusive, culturally relevant and diverse.

However, we also know that every day we ask our students to reflect on their work and identify how they can make progress and do even better.  This is also a commitment that we make of ourselves; we must look at where we can do better by reflecting on our work and listening to the views of our community.  We will set up a more formal process for this through the WPA in September but in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly. 

As you are aware, we are in phase 3 of our Virtual school and a key part of this is the live tutor session every Wednesday morning.  This week the focus of the session was on ‘Positive Action’ and we were incredibly impressed by the contributions your children made to the discussion.  We know that learning remotely is a challenge for everyone but please ensure your son/daughter is keeping up with their work and don’t hesitate to get in contact if we can do anything further to support you.
