15 Jun Year 6 appear on the ITV News!
The school has developed its own diverse Britain curriculum which links closely with the Hackney Council’s Diverse Curriculum, The Black Contribution. ITV news wanted to feature the curriculum and how it is being used by schools in the context of what is being done to support anti-racism work one year on from the death of George Floyd.
Our Diverse Britain curriculum has Britain at its core, focusing on the stories, both past and present, that have shaped the place that we live in today. The curriculum offers critical thinking opportunities to discuss the world around us, in order to equip our pupils with the skills and values needed to understand and navigate the diverse landscape around them.
By teaching this curriculum, we hope to instil a sense of belonging for all pupils, enabling them to feel confident that their identities are reflected in our school curriculum.
