Resources

We appreciate schools are very busy and are constantly under enormous pressure, so we have been collating some resources that may be useful when lesson planning, around working towards anti racist practice, and inclusivity within school.

In case you have not come across these before, please find below resources for you to delve further into. We hope these will help staff to embed anti racist practice and inclusivity deeper into the curriculum.
