Today years 4,5 and 6 had a visit from Declan (Coventry Police) and Adam (Sky Blues) who talked to them about a UK wide initiative to fight racism. The initiative is being championed by football clubs across the UK who work with the local police teams to communicate key anti-racism messages throughout their community. Broad Heath is now part of that community and children were inspired to be role models for the rest of the school in taking a no-tolerance stance against racism. Declan and Adam talked about the importance of some of our school values – respect, communication and kindness – in making the world a better place where everyone, irrespective of race, religion, skin colour is part of the community.
Following the assembly children designed anti-racism posters which will be entered into a competition to win tickets to a Coventry City football game!
What did you learn from the assembly and how are YOU going to make a difference?
