Black Lives Matter
We are dedicated to ensuring everyone is welcome at our school. Herbert Morrison Primary School supports anti-racist principles. We believe that all people should be treated with dignity and respect and we stand in solidarity with BAME communities locally and globally. We are dedicated to continuing to learn about the ways discrimination affects lives and to actively respond to help achieve a racially just and diverse society. We have been greatly moved by the energy and engagement of our community to the Black Lives Matter movement. Schools are key to the process of combatting racism. We take seriously our responsibility to equip young people for their lives by offering a broad and diverse curriculum alongside the continued development of good ethical and moral practice within our community. We are a gold Rights Respecting School, WeHerbert Morrison Primary School has a long tradition of welcoming pupils from diverse backgrounds. We ensure that our curriculum covers issues of racial equality, discrimination, diversity, and the immense contributions of BAME communities. We have a lot of good work already going on and we are determined to continue to develop. Our school places great importance on ‘valuing one another’. We want to learn with mutual respect to honour that value and be instrumental in bringing about a racially just society.
