Anti-racism resource hub: how to work towards racial justice in your school

Advice and resources to help you take meaningful action to address racism in your school.

  • Analyse your data to identify whether any groups of pupils are receiving a disproportionate number of behaviour sanctions
  • Carry out behaviour audit to find out whether your staff and pupils feel that the behaviour policy puts pupils who are BAME at a disadvantage

Although 'anti-racism' as a term is used in a range of ways, we use it in our resources to mean "the policy or practice of opposing racism and promoting racial equality".

We use 'BAME' (black, Asian or minority ethnic) throughout these articles as a succinct way to refer to the many ethnic minority groups in England. However, we recognise that some people aren’t comfortable with this term.

When talking about this topic in your school we'd encourage you to think about what will work best in your own context (other widely used terms include "ethnic minorities" and "people of colour"). Individuals should always be referred to according to their own ethnicity, rather than grouped in this way.

These articles refer to diversity in relation to race. You can, and should, apply similar principles to improve diversity terms of gender, disability and sexual orientation.
