Throughout Black History Month in October we signposted events, resources and activities for your school community to refer to and use to shine the spotlight on the contributions of black people and our shared history.
In case you missed these, we have gathered all of the links here so that students, teachers and leaders in your schools can draw on them as you honour your commitment to ensuring continued learning and action to tackle the day to day reality of institutional racism all year round.
