          Black Lives Matter
          We, as a school community, see the pain of our Black community, we hear you, we mourn with you and we stand with you in saying Black Lives Matter.

           

          We want to commit to being anti-racist: we will not tolerate racism and we will promote our values of justice and respect to actively oppose racism within our school and the ongoing discrimination that is still part of society.

           

          We will strive to educate ourselves and others, so that we can better understand the impact of past and present racism on Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities and take informed action to bring about change.

           

          We aspire to be a safe, supportive place that listens to and supports those experiencing the effects of racism and discrimination. It is our hope that being part of the SMRT community, will help all people learn to actively combat racism in our school, in our society and in our world.

           

          We would like to take this moment to honour and promote the Going for Gold programme that has been running successfully for 13 years, with a vision to ensure black young people develop a strong sense of identity that allows them to thrive. It has impacted hundreds of students and shaped our school and society immeasurably.

           

          Worship – Chaplain Joey
          As we consider the many injustices around the world, let us read the words of James 2:14-16 and ask, what does this mean for us today?

           

          If you know someone who doesn’t have any clothes or food, you shouldn’t just say, “I hope all goes well for you. I hope you will be warm and have plenty to eat.” What good is it to say this, unless you do something to help? Faith that doesn’t lead us to do good deeds is all alone and dead!

           

          Here is a prayer for this time

           

           

          With all the discomfort in the world, here are the comforting words of Psalm 23, sung by the wonderful Mrs Morris and her family , reminding us that when we feel isolated and forgotten, we are not alone!

           

           

           

          Wellbeing Tips – Ms Howard
          I do not know and would never pretend to understand how our black community are feeling at the moment. It is however, very important for me to educate myself to recognise what I can do to support you at this time. If you feel triggered by recent events or drained by the media and social media coverage then I hope that the following resources and links can help.

          We want to hear and learn from you and are encouraging students to send in their views and opinions of the Black Lives Matter movement and on the subject of racism.

          Education
          You can go to the Moodle Mental Wellbeing area if would like more education about the Black Lives Matter movement. We will be sharing an increase in resources and information in the near future. To bring about change we often need to start with conversation, education and self reflection. Listening is key, here's a video asking the question, is Britain Racist?

          We pretend. We lie. We digress from the truth to shield them from all evils.
          But the truth is we dream of such a world where race, creed and colour do not define us.

           

          We protect them from the facts of life and speak of the past, forgetting the present.
          We praise MLK, Malcolm and Mandela as civil right heroes, neglecting the bitter truth that they took the first steps on our long walk to freedom.

           

          Enough is enough. Our children deserve better.
          They need to know our struggle.
          Only then can we dream of better things.

          Lastly, If you didn't get to catch Friday's phenomenal Pentecost Service, you can watch it here.

           

          Thanks for reading, and we'll see you next week. Until then, peace be with you!

          Love the INA team
