My colleague Gill Wyatt who is the Extended Services Development Manager for the Aireborough cluster...

"Dear Chris, I would like to let you know about a few of the activities taking place in the next two weeks to promote the Stephen Lawrence Education Standard in Aireborough schools. This year the 14 schools in Aireborough are working together to achieve the Stephen Lawrence Education Standard. In doing this our aim is to promote, champion and embed race equality in our schools, ensuring that similar life opportunities are available to all. We aim to prepare our children and young people to become responsible citizens of the world, recognising the part that they play both within our local community in Aireborough, and in society as a whole. We want our children and young people to appreciate and value the diversity of people’s backgrounds, and to create strong and positive relationships within schools and the wider community. If you need any additional information or have any comments please do not hestitate to contact me. Many thanks. Regards, Gill."

It is wonderful to hear that the Aireborough schools are taking on the Stephen Lawrence Education Standard together. I hope colleagues will support them wherever they can.
