In light of what has happened since the end of the European Championship Final on Sunday the school would like to share with you a statement in support of the three young players that missed a penalty and how we will not tolerate racism within our community.
Marcus, Jadon and Bukayo. Three young men who had the courage to stand up and take a penalty. They had the support of a whole country behind them and they will continue to have that support from true England fans. Neither they nor anybody else deserves the disgusting, vile racist comments that were posted online on various social media sites since the end of the European Championship final. Racism has no part to play in sport and in life in general either online or in our local communities. As a school we are building a culture of being actively anti racist so that we will see an end to racism online and within our local communities.
If your child has been upset by what they have heard or may have seen then please do encourage them to talk to a member of staff at school.
