Parents and carers gathered in Marylebone for the third exclusions session hosted by Parents Action and Resource Centre on Saturday 10th February. Parents had the opportunity to share their personal experiences as well as gain essential information on the school exclusions process. PARC used this opportunity to launch its Check your bias campaign which aims to raise awareness of the need for staff in education settings to receive unconscious bias training due to its disproportionate impact on Black children and young people.
“This is a measure that, if implemented, would go a long way in addressing some of the inequalities in education, especially around the disproportionate exclusions faced by particular groups of children and young people,” commented Ade Banjoko, chair of PARC.
