Camden Schools Sign Up to Anti-Racism Scheme

Thirteen schools in Camden have signed up to a new scheme in memory of Stephen Lawrence - who was murdered in a racist attack in 1993.

'The Stephen Lawrence Education Standard' aims to celebrate the diversity and culture of students and encourages schools to promote racial equality across the whole of school life and in their work with the community.

Camden Council Leader, Councillor Nasim Ali, said: "I'm immensely proud that 13 Camden schools have already signed up to the Stephen Lawrence Education Standard with others waiting to join. This scheme is crucial to helping community cohesion to flourish in Camden. There is already some fantastic work being done in our schools with black and minority ethnic pupils and local groups and we hope every Camden school will sign up."
