Windrush opportunity for pupils aged 8 and above

Lyttanya Shannon is directing a documentary for the BBC , about the experience of the children of the windrush generation in the British education system, during the 1960s and 1970s. During this time, black children were 4 x more likely to be sent to special schools, known back then as schools for the “educationally subnormal”. These startling disparities were often caused by racist assumptions and attitudes towards black children. It had a profound effect and prevented many from achieving their full potential.

We’d like to include an element in the film that explores the experience of young black children and teenagers in today’s schools, to find out how they feel about their race in the context of education. We’re looking for a variety of ages, between 8 and 16, and would ideally like to film this or next week .

The film is being executive produced by Oscar winning director Steve McQueen, and by James Rogan, Director of Stephen Lawrence: The Murder that Changed a Nation.

If you would be interested in your child taking part, and to find out more information, please email the researcher for the project Beya@roganproductions.net or text +44 7538 712227.

We will film at a social distance, ideally in an outdoor space - and your child will need to be chaperoned by a legal guardian or responsible adult.

Parking 

Can I remind all parents/carers to park in the appropriate spaces outside the school grounds. The blocking of any school gate causes a major issue, in terms of safety and in line with the Highway Code, a vehicle must not park in an area with zig-zag lines or yellow lines.

If you are asked to move, please do so immediately and without verbal abuse of our staff, members of the local community or traffic wardens.

A CCTV camera is in place on Dormers Wells Lane and regular traffic warden patrols will issue parents with fines, if cars are parked illegally. This includes parking on the pavement, as well as parking across dropped kerbs, single or double yellow lines.

We all need to work together to ensure the safety of all Infant and Junior pupils, at the beginning and end of the school day. We have signs placed outside the school and staff wearing High Visibility jackets daily, to help ensure the safety of your child/children.

We would encourage all parents/carers to walk their children to school and where use of a car is unavoidable, to park further away from the school or in a safe place.
