Have these conversations all the time
This isn't just about ''not being racist'', it's about being actively anti-racist.
Conversations about race and racism shouldn’t be limited to a big one-off assembly or annual Black History Month event – they should be taking place all the time.
Encourage staff and pupils to have these conversations in classrooms, in the playground, during pastoral times (e.g. form tutor time or circle time) and within lessons. These issues should be incorporated into your curriculum – find out how to do this using our anti-racism curriculum review tool.
There shouldn’t be anywhere or any time when these discussions are off-limits.
Train your staff to be equipped to have these conversations
If you don't feel comfortable running training yourself and you'd like an external organisation
