Black Lives Matter
BLACK LIVES MATTER at St Matthew Academy
Our motto, ‘Let Your Light Shine’ is taken from St Matthew’s Gospel, and encapsulates our belief in the uniqueness of every individual. At the heart of our Academy ethos is our belief in promoting an ‘inclusive, caring, Catholic community.’ We believe strongly in modelling tolerance, equality and respect. We are here to support all members of our community, irrespective of race, gender, sexuality, faith or none.
At St Matthew Academy we stand together against systematic racism and individual bigotry that continues to take the lives of black men, women and children around the world. We commit, with our pupils, to being part of change in our local and global community.
We ensure that everything we do helps to:
- Eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
- Advance the equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
- Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those that do not
