BAME books and resources for my Primary School

I work in a primary school and during  lockdown I have had the opportunity to spend a considerable amount of time working in our school library refreshing our resources. What struck me is how under-represented BAME is in our literature. Also, the Chichester area where our school is located is also under-represented with BAME children. Therefore, it is crucial that we allow the children in our school to learn and appreciate the different cultures in our country and beyond.

I spoke to my head teacher who has been fully supportive of the need to replenish our books and ensure that they are fully representative of all communities and cultures. She agreed that this would be a priority with future purchasing.

However, the recent events with the #Blacklivesmatter movement combined with my previous jobs, where I developed a passion for diversity and inclusion, equal access for all and raising awareness of these issues, I started to think about how I could make a personal contribution to this cause. 

As a result, I decided to set up this page,   to raise funds for the school, where I           work, to purchase BAME books and            resources for our primary children to         enjoy across all age groups. We know         that the children will really enjoy being     able to access this information and will     raise their understanding of the issues      faced which will support their growing      respect for all cultures. Education at a       young age is so crucial.

I have researched BAME books and as       you can see from the attached photo          there are so many BAME books out there. I would love to see these on shelves of our library ready for the children to             embrace and enjoy. If you are able to          donate to this cause it would be so               gratefully revived. Thank you in advance for any support.  Georgina
