Raising the Game
This is year 3 of Lambeth’s Raising the Game (RtG) initiative and Woodmansterne’s third year of involvement. This year the initiative has expanded to other schools and London boroughs and our secondary joins the primary in working with the RtG partnership and as an all-through we are committed to the RtG aims of raising academic achievement, improving the educational experience and narrowing the attainment gap for Black Caribbean pupils in Lambeth. This academic year Aim High Online shares inspirational talks from successful black professionals, there are parental roadshows hosted by the Rt Hon Stuart Lawrence, which have been in Woody News and on our website, and Woodmansterne staff join school staff across Lambeth in a series of Anti-racism ‘Train the Trainer’ sessions.
The Lambeth Schools Racial Justice Champions Network has been established to share practice and embed the work in the RtG initiative.
Woodmansterne’s Racial Justice Champions:
I’m Sierah Mansaray and I work in the Secondary Phase at Woodmansterne, leading Geography and I am the Head of Year 7. I am really looking forward to building on the work of RtG this year and ensuring its implementation into the fabric of school life. I am excited to be involved in making a difference as part of the Racial Justice Group and working with others to successfully meet the key aims of the project at Woodmansterne.
I’m Indigo Axford and I am a class teacher in the Primary Phase at Woodmansterne. I am excited to be working with the Racial Justice Group to take forward and embed good practice, make a difference and meet the goals we have set for ourselves and for our pupils.
