Greenvale School stands united with the family, and friends, of George Floyd, who was unlawfully killed on the 25th May 2020, in Minnesota, USA. As a school community, we condemn any form of racism, discrimination and inequality.
Our school has always been so proud of the great diversity we have in our school. We are a school that celebrates difference and welcomes everyone. We hope that this will never change. We have enormous respect for every member of our community and we are always here for you, regardless of your disability, race, sexuality, gender, religion or anything else which makes you, you.
Today and every other day, all of us at Greenvale School stand as one with our black pupils, staff, parents and the entire BAME community in condemning racism.
A joint statement from Lewisham Primary Headteachers.
Lewisham Leaders stand together to condemn the unlawful murder of an innocent black man George Floyd in Minneapolis . We stand united in our commitment to tackle and challenge racism, address inequality and call out discrimination. Black people are 40 times more likely to be stopped and searched in the UK . Young black people are nine times more likely to be locked up in England and Wales than their white counterparts, while BAME offenders are far more likely than others to be jailed for drug offences. As educators of a school population which is 76% Black and ethnic minority we cannot remain silent. The murder of George Floyd must prompt careful reflection about racism in Britain today, and the extent to which it shapes our values, politics and economic life. Our community needs and deserves to feel safe in the belief that its leaders condemn all acts of racism and violence and moreover that they believe racism is an abhorrence that we as Lewisham Leaders reject. Lewisham Leaders have a duty to address systemic racism in our society and we uphold this in our united condemnation of the unlawful murder of an innocent black man George Floyd.
