War in Ukraine

Moved by the humanitarian crisis resulting from the Russian governments war of aggression against Ukraine, the Surrey NEU District Committee voted on 2nd March to make a £2000 donation to UNICEF in the name of Surrey NEU members. It is hoped that this will go some way to alleviate the suffering of children forced from their homes in Ukraine. It is the believe of Surrey NEU that all people should be able to live in peace and without threat of violence regardless of nationality, race, gender or sexuality.

National NEU Statement about the treatment of student known as Child Q

The NEU is appalled by the findings of the Local Child Safeguarding Practice Review into the treatment of Child Q. Students have a right to be treated respectfully and with dignity at all times and for their wellbeing and safety to be top priority.  

Instead, the report has clearly identified racist treatment and stereotyping of Child Q by the police, as well as misogynistic and humiliating behaviour.

We extend our full sympathy and solidarity to Child Q and her family and echo their calls for this never to happen again. Black children and young people are 3-4 times more likely to be ​stopped and searched than White children.  

The Government needs to produce revised guidance to all schools. And for that revised guidance to emphasise the importance of; challenging racist and sexist practices in situations such as this, including following safeguarding procedures and good practice, working with students and their families and challenging unacceptable behaviour in such circumstances, whether by other staff, including senior managers, the police or other outside agencies. 

More widely, the governing bodies of all schools and academies must ensure that anti-racist practices are in place, and they clarify safeguarding procedures to staff.

Covid-19

The NEU is working to help ensure the health and safety of our members, their families and our schools as we continue to face the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. There are many resources and FAQs relating to coronavirus available on the main NEU webpage.
