Towards an Anti-Racist Curriculum | Tower Hamlets

Towards an Anti-Racist Curriculum | Tower Hamlets

Thanks to the funding of the Tower Hamlets Council’s Strategy, Policy and Performance Team, Global Learning London is offering Tower Hamlets schools the opportunity to interrogate the role they play in challenging and re-balancing inequality of opportunity and outcomes and act upon it through anti-racist practice.

Our support package for schools consists of:

  • Three 1.5 hour training sessions (one per term) bringing Lead Teachers from Tower Hamlets schools together to lay the groundwork, track progress and provide peer support in a dialogic space
  • One half-day training support for each school, delivered to all staff. We will share tried and tested global learning methodologies in an interactive space whilst sparking conversation and learning around the decolonising of curriculums, the importance of Black British History and the impact of language and leadership in school contexts.  Teachers will be able to continue to develop their awareness and skills through digital training resources following the session.
  • One in-depth surgery with the Senior Leadership Team of each school, to consult on transforming curriculum with a practical action plan and road map to reform.

The package will be delivered as follows:
