Curriculum resources: anti-racism

The NEU is committed to tackling racism and decolonising the curriculum. We have written to the Government with 5 actions to tackle racism. These are the action points which relate the curriculum:

  • Review the curriculum to ensure it embraces the fact that Britain is rooted in Black and global history, achievement and culture and includes the achievements of Black Britons; as recommended by the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry.
  • Learn from the Windrush Review and develop a plan to teach about the history of the UK and its relationship to the rest of the world – including Britain’s colonial history and the history of migration.

This page is dedicated to resources which challenge racism. We have a separate page for resources aimed at decolonising the curriculum.

We will use this page to host links to resources for educators to use in schools. These are resources that have been recommended to us by our members or produced by them. Please use your professional judgement to adapt any resources to suit your classes and the context in which you teach.
