Black History Month – October 2023

October is Black History Month in the UK and across the school we have been taking the opportunity to celebrate the achievements and contributions black people have made to our society.  This year, Black History Month was dedicated to honouring the achievements of black women (Salute our Sisters) who are often the forgotten heroines. We wanted to amplify their voices and challenge the systems that oppress them. 


Children have been set the challenge through their google classroom page to complete their own research into an inspiring black British woman and we will be collating these into a whole-school book.  Alongside this, each year group has been looking at the work of a specific artist and we look forward to sharing some of what we have learned at our harvest celebrations. We work hard to promote diversity widely across the school and across the year.


We are always keen to explore how we share the message and show through our actions that everyone is welcome and valued at St Bede.
