The Legacy of Stephen Lawrence Truthfulness, Fairness and Respect
The lessons of fairness and respect must start early if we are to have a truly fair and civilised society, free from discrimination where we all play our part as active citizens. It is my belief that these values are strongest when anchored and embedded into a school's culture and explicitly taught through the curriculum. My vision is that Stephen's Annual National Day will serve as a focus for your school community to engage in activities that empower young people to live their best life. Baroness Lawrence of Clarendon OBE (Stephen's mum)
When pupils reach Year 2 at Magna Carta they become anti-bullying ambassadors an accolade which they carry with them as they move up through the school years. Every new year 2 class will all become anti-bullying ambassadors resulting in a school filled with them.
This will happen on or around Stephen Lawrence Day (22nd April) every year.
We have to remain positive; the world is filled with wonderful, kind, caring people. There is far more good in this world than bad. It is our duty as educators to ensure that our curriculum explicitly teaches pupils about peacefully fighting against hatred.
