How To Be an Antiracist
October- BLACK HISTORY MONTH 2020
At Copley Academy we are proud to be participating in Black History Month. Please keep visiting this section of the website for information of our involvement in this event as well as seeing our social media pages on Twitter and Facebook, especially if you do not already follow us.
A GREAT place to start with BHM is the national celebration of Black History through the painting of postboxes to commenorate and acknowledge the contribution of Black Britons to our society, https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-54344961 as well as reading the powerful words of Poet Benjamin Zephaniah.
Our Anti-Racist approach at Copley Academy extends to all our staff as well as our students and we encourage everyone to think about racism in the workplace.
