Raising The Game
The ‘Raising the Game’ project is based on extensive research running in selected Lambeth schools to improve outcomes at all key stages, to raise aspirations and to reduce exclusions for Black Caribbean pupils who underachieve in relation to their peers nationally and locally.
The programme is being run and led by headteacher and leadership teams who are determined to tackle this issue at all levels. Schools have been selected based on the capacity, commitment and strength of their leaders as well as those that are diverse and focused on equality for all.
These speakers included representatives from the African Caribbean Medical Mentors Association (ACMM), educators, lawyers, economists, storytellers, a vet, a member of Mensa, a police officer, an actress, a child psychologist, a fashion designer, a journalist, political members, senior Lambeth staff and many more.
This involves incorporating stories, facts and information reflecting Black Caribbean history, experience and culture. This inspires interest and excitement amongst all pupils in relation to Black Caribbean history and culture, and in doing so encourages Black Caribbean pupils to have a stronger sense of pride about their heritage.
