Hitherfield Primary School and Children's Centre




Black Lives Matter

We have all been appalled by the events that have led up to the Black Lives Matter movement and Hitherfield fully supports the on-going struggle against racism and towards a truly equal society with equal opportunities for all. Hitherfield has always challenged racism and other forms of discrimination and we will continue to tackle any forms of prejudice. We are a wonderfully diverse community school and we fully support the Black Lives Matter movement.

Hitherfield’s curriculum has been developed over many years and has been designed to reflect our community so that all our children can see themselves and others positively reflected in the broad and creative curriculum. However, what we have done so far is still not enough and so we are going to do more.

We will be establishing a working group of parents, governors and staff to strategically review our curriculum and look at how we can engage even more with our families so that all of our children benefit more from our rich cultural heritage. This work will be a key part of our School Development Plan going forward so that all of our children leave Hitherfield with a deeper understanding that black lives matter.
