Course Details

These discursive facilitated zoom sessions will bring together teachers, school leaders and governors who are interested in developing a whole school approach to anti-racism.  It is designed for practitioners and leaders who are already committed to the work of anti-racism in schools, but are at the start of their journey.  The course will be split into two sessions, with the first focusing on staff development and the second focused on curriculum coverage for pupils.  It will explore realistic practical strategies and examples of actions taken within the Fox Federation, with case studies, our own reflections and sharing of lessons learnt.  Developing anti-racist practice is an ongoing process. Through honest discussion and reflection, we will support attendees to take their first steps on this journey.
