Racial equity: Reframing incidents of racial harm in secondary schools PART ONE (3 SESSION COURSE)

23/11/2023 09:30 - 11/01/2024 17:30

The way in which we understand incidents and issues of racial harm informs how these issues are responded to in schools. This three part training offers new ways of framing these issues, which leads to new approaches in ‘first aid’ responses and management of issues/ incidents. 

The course will cover:

•Understanding the range of racialised experiences and their impact on young people

•Exploring how children and young people navigate experiences and stereotypes

•Exploring perspectives on the use of racial language amongst young people, and approaches to addressing racial language

•Developing an understanding of trauma-informed first aid responses 

•Examining school approaches to incident/issue management (dismissive, punitive, corrective, restorative)

•Rethinking intent and impact

•Working towards more restorative approaches for incident/issue management

Led by Race Matters

The first session will be held in-person and the other 2 will be held via ZOOM as follows;

Part 1 – Thursday 23rd November – 9.30 – 12.00

Ideally at least two members of staff from each participating school, preferably one of whom is a person of colour member of staff - who will be students’ first port of call in the event of an incident or issue.
