Since I wrote the first blog, a number of people and organisations have been in touch about what they can do to address racism in schools. A number of students from independent schools have also written to Heads asking for a more diverse curriculum, more ‘black’ staff, more robust procedures for dealing with racism and an opportunity to be taken seriously. To help, and to manage the requests I have received over the last week or so, I’m publishing some of my preliminary work for the GSA/Brightfield leadership development project on better recruitment in schools in the hope that institutions can move forward in a positive manner. The suggestions below have benefitted from the input of other colleagues in other independent schools who are committed to making positive changes. I want to thank them publicly for their comments.Although my project and the suggestions are focussed on independent schools, they would work equally well in many cases for state schools too.
