Black History Month

Black History Month

Thursday 1st October 2020 marked the beginning of Black History Month in the UK. This month traditionally offers the chance to recognise and value the inspirational individuals and events that have shaped British society, culture and events as well as those in the wider world.

However, at Lakenham Primary School, we believe that we cannot look at the aspects of History studied in the National Curriculum as a whole without considering how Black History is a part of this. We have worked very hard to diversify our curriculum to ensure that it considers the history of a broad range of individuals from different races, cultures and genders. We believe that this will give context to how our society has developed to present day.
