Anti-Racist Learning Hub Hub

Main aims of the project

Supporting schools to ensure they embed anti-racism into the culture of their schools in order to ensure that explicit and implicit racism is challenged through their everyday words and actions. Curriculum will be at the forefront of the first Anti-Racist Learning Hub where colleagues will be equipped with the tools to make strategic, long term changes to ensure that anti-racism is embedded into their curriculums. Hub members and their colleagues will be supported to make a borough-wide cultural shift to challenge racism through what they teach and how they teach it. The effects of this will be:

  • Teachers are confident when discussing issues directly and indirectly involving race and racism
  • Students from all ethnic backgrounds will have the language to discuss race and racism
  • Staff and students will be able to expand their awareness of and ability to challenge racism
  • Personal development will improve for the school-wide community
  • Students will feel seen and validated.

What does the Hub plan to achieve and what resources will be created?

Teachers from primary and secondary schools who are committed to anti-racism and willing to do the work needed to embed an anti-racist culture in their classrooms. We welcome teachers from a range of different subjects. Teachers will reflect on their own personal and departmental practice but will also reflect on how the principles of an anti-racist curriculum can be embedded into all disciplines and in a cross-curricular nature. We want members to disseminate their learning to their colleagues so that their whole school is confident in how to embed an anti-racist curriculum. Therefore this would be an excellent opportunity for an aspiring leader due to the training and coaching possibilities.
