Thomas Arnold Primary School

Race Social Justice

At Thomas Arnold Primary School, our vision is to make diversity and anti-racism central to our curriculum and practice, so that everyone feels valued and know they truly belong. Barking and Dagenham is one of London’s most diverse boroughs and we are proud to say the staff of our school fully reflect the diversity in our local community. Our school has signed up to and are implementing the key points on the Race & Social Justice Charter.

At Thomas Arnold, we have been proactive in making sure the books in our school library and in classrooms reflect the community our children live in. We want all our pupils to feel valued and a real sense of belonging by seeing themselves in books they read. Here are some recommended books ARISE (Anti-Racism in School and Education). Many of these can be found in our school library and classroom book corners.
