Black Lives Matter

People across the world are demanding change in relation to policies and attitudes that lead to inequalities for black and other minority ethnic groups. The message, which we wholeheartedly endorse, is clear.

Racism cannot be tolerated.

As a school, we are proud of our richly diverse community and we celebrate the talents, aspirations and individuality of every member of our student body in our six core values of integrity, cooperation, aspiration, respect, unity and responsibility.

We also recognise that there is much to do at every level to ensure that deep seated and fundamental inequalities are addressed.

We believe that the best starting place is within ourselves as individuals and within our own school community. We are committed to being actively anti-racist.

We accept that we are in the early stages of a process which has been too long delayed and which now needs to be progressed with urgency and full commitment.

We will make a comprehensive statement on our plans to make such progress when we have agreed them as a whole school community on our return in September.
