Black History Month

It is key that our classrooms are free from discrimination and celebrate diversity all year round, so every professional and student can reach their full potential. Black History Month is used by schools to highlight the achievements and history of Black people. This history should be part of the national curriculum and not just picked up in October. The NEU has Black member networks across the country and continues to speak out for anti-racist education and against the far right. Please click on the link below to view resources you can use to celebrate the history of all the pupils in your class/school all year round.
