Anti Racism Pledge
Braunstone Frith Primary Academy –
An Anti-Racist School
As educators and school leaders, we are committed to ensuring that ALL staff and young people are safe and truly belong in our school. This is something that all of the schools across the LiFE Multi Academy Trust are committed to.
We acknowledge that the lives of many children, parents, governors and staff are impacted by racism in our school community and across society in general, so we seek to disrupt it through improvements in policies, practices and through our school curriculum.
At Braunstone Frith Primary Academy, we operate a zero-tolerance approach towards all discrimination. We believe it is imperative to address racism in all its forms and offer our unambiguous support to all of our children, governors, trustees, parents, carers and guardians who are racialised as Black or a Person of Colour. We wish to reassure you that all matters of racial discrimination, whether it presents itself overtly or covertly, will be handled with the upmost care and importance.
We are committed to five key actions that are considered a starting point in showing our school’s willingness to engage in dialogue and ensure all staff and children can be proud of attending an Anti-Racist School. These actions are shown below:
Reporting a Racist Incident
The Stephen Lawrence Inquiry Report (1999) offers a number of definitions of what a racist incident is. Below is one of the definitions in the report that we believe best supports our school in preventing and addressing racially motivated behaviours.
“A racist incident is any incident which is perceived to be racist by the victim or any other person”.
This definition provides an essential starting point for schools in addressing the wide range of behaviours that could be racially motivated. Although there is no statutory requirement to report racist incidents to an external body, we commit to reporting and reviewing all racist incidents so that we can continue to improve school practices to ensure that all forms of discrimination are addressed effectively.
If you are concerned that there has been a racist incident associated with any members of our school community, please contact the school office on [email protected] or ring 0116 287 2487

We stand together in solidarity across the globe to change the world, we kneel together for peace and unities asserting Black people are treated as humanely and fairly as White people.
It is a human right to receive racial equality, social and criminal justice in the societies we live, and to receive parity as full citizens of the country and as a nation.
This is a non-political, non-partisan, non-violence platform.
