A guide to reviewing all of your existing school policies with an anti-racist lens.
Often, we don’t recognise or understand institutional or systemic racism because we don’t recognise that incidents are part of a pattern.
This pattern can include behaviour that results from many of the policies that we use in school to support our day-to-day decision making.
Reviewing your existing policies can help you to identify these patterns and improve your policies by making them fair and equitable to all members of the school community.
Some of the policies you may want to review include:
- Behaviour and relationships policy
- Anti-bullying policy
- Exclusions policy
- School uniform policy or rules
This resource shares guidance on how to review these existing policies, what to look out for and who to be involved.
