Towards an Anti-Racist Tower Hamlets

Towards an Anti-Racist Tower Hamlets

Tower Hamlets is one of the most diverse boroughs in the country, and as part of the borough’s Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic Inequality Commission Action Plan, it was recognised that schools and educators play a key role in shifting narratives and creating long lasting change. Therefore, the Commission funded a year long project for 18 schools across Tower Hamlets to begin their anti-racist journey.
The project is funded for a second year, with 90% of the schools returning to continue their journey, and new schools joining our network of Anti-Racist Schools.

“I thought our school really needed to improve its policies, staff diversity and curricula. I have seen how much the children enjoy seeing people who represent them within their learning. I thought it was really important that our whole school was trying to achieve this”.

“Having the network and support of likeminded professionals I have found the most helpful. Sharing information and ideas with other projects lead and knowing that you are not going through this alone.”
