Black History Month - Listening to our community

Dear Parents and Carers,


As we approach Black History month we need your help. All the adults in the school are currently working really hard to update our curriculum so it reflects our community and society  and it also promotes a more equal and just society.


We believe that all schools are key to tackling racism and other forms of discrimination. At Athelney Primary School we embrace our community, welcome all and strive to be inclusive in all that we do. Our School Values of Respect, Responsibility, Resilience, Confidence, Collaboration and Community underpin all that we do. We are always here for you, regardless of your race, sexuality, gender, religion or anything else which makes you, you.


However we know we can always do better and this is where you can help us. We are going to hold a Zoom meeting on Wednesday 7th of October at 16:00 to open up the discussion to what you think as parents and carers should be included in what we teach the children and how we can better promote equal opportunities for all children.


We know the change for a better world, needs to start at school and at home with children from a young age, help us with that change. Without our voices together that change will not be loud and clear.


‘Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.’ James Baldwin

Yours sincerely,


Nick Simms
