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.
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.
Refugee voices videos – A series of inspiring short film clips in which refugee children and young people talk about their experiences of coming to a school in the UK, with staff training notes for use with the clips
Our Migration Story – The Making of Britain (This is primarily a history resource, but could easily be adapted for a cross-curricular project as several of the activities require basic statistical analysis.)
