As a group of black and dual herritage mothers and fathers with children of all ages we have seen how the schooling sytem is effecting our children. We feel collectively that we need to take responsibility and stop expecting others to teach our children we need to provide them with the real life skills, knowledge,support and high standards to thrive as adults.
With that in mind to us it makes sense to stop relying on a system that is failing our children and create our own. Our aim is to raise enough money to build a primary school and high school in London and hopefully many more after that in all major cities just for our children,children of black and ethnic minorities that are being stereo typed, under estimated and sometimes criminialised within the current system and create a safe learning environment where they are understood, nurtured and given the tools they need to be responsible intelligent young people. We understand our aim is high and unthinkable to many but we are determined to put a stop to the systemic racism that is currently shaping the youth of today. Some may think this is a step backwards into segregation. It is not it is simply coming to the realisation that unless we take back the responsibility for our childrens education we cannot continue to complain about the results of the young people that leave the education system. We know our children have great potential we need to create the environment they need to flourish.
Our schools main aims will be to provide a safe environment for black and ethnic minority children to learn we will focus on key skills such as maths, english, science and history along with many life skills based subjects such as food economics, finance,world information, geography, mindfullness and agri culture skills and provide safe sports and extra curicular facilities for after school free time and specialist coaching. There will also be a strong encouragement of personal talents such as creative arts and dance. Our aim is to give our young people the best possible start all round from the education we provide them with to food we serve them at lunchtime and fill them with the knowledge and confindence to be successful adults. With the ability to hand pick the best teachers to provide outstanding education for out future generation we can be reasurred that for once our childrens education is being made a priority. We would like our first school to be built in our hometown of London but eventually we aim to have a school in every major city in the uk so every single one of children can have the opportunity for outstanding education We hope you understand our goals and we will appreciate all help and support from any other likeminded people we currently are a group of 9 (3 of which are teachers) and would appreciate any help! It takes a village right !
