Black Lives Matter
At The Jenny Hammond Primary School we strive to promote equality and celebrate diversity in all its forms. We feel it is important to address and reflect the ongoing events across the world in response to George Floyd’s death, standing up and challenging racism and inequality at all levels.
We want you to know that we take the Black Lives Matter movement seriously, we acknowledge what has happened and whilst we have been having discussions with our children and staff we will be continuing the work hard with our school community to raise awareness, challenge discrimination and support ‘Change.’
Please take the time to read the letter in the link below where you will find more information and a chance to take part in a Black Lives Matter competition, sponsored by The National Education Union (NEU), the largest education union in Europe. The competition is part of the special launch of the 100 Great Black Britons campaign created by Patrick Vernon OBE to celebrate the continued legacy and achievements of Black people in Britain.
Welcome to The Jenny Hammond Primary School.
Our children have had to endure a change in their lifetime that we did not foresee or ever think would happen with the presence of Covid-19. They have had to be brave, resilient and deal with emotions that have challenged us as parents in order to see them through. Our children are curious, articulate and challenge when they think there is an injustice and now our children are talking and questioning why Racism still exists and what they could do to make a positive change.
We are always very proud of our children at Jenny Hammond and we are bursting with pride with the knowledge that they along with their parents, have decided to be proactive in making a change.
Albert, Dhilan, Stanley, Elea along with the rest of their friends want to be part of the change that sees the end systemic racism. They have been learning about racism and what that actually means, been talking to their friends and feeling the injustice.
They have taken their love of Roblox Piggy to create character heads and their love of baking to create yummy treats to raise some money for the BLM foundation. At the weekend, they went to Wanstead Flats and set up a stall and managed to raise £99. They then set up a Just Giving page and they have now raised a staggering amount of £350.
Please support by donating to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/blmtoalbertdhilanstanleyelea
The proceeds will be going to BLM and Manhood Academy, a London based charity that aims to raise the attainment of black boys, offers 121 coaching and mentoring, and urban rites of passage.
