Anti-racism is a journey, not a destination. This is really important for us to remember and commit to.

It is not about what we will do this year or next. Ultimately it is about ensuring anti-racism is embedded across our schools and processes, both now and in the future beyond our tenures. That is the work that will create legacy.

However, it is challenging to change outcomes overnight. Therefore to address systemic inequality requires a focused, long-term, and deep commitment.

As such, focusing on school policies is crucial. The best school policies are the ones that reflect the real experience of all stakeholders; that seek to dismantle inequalities.
