TEP Talks: One Year On - What Now? with Lavinya Stennett

Event Date: 23 November 2021

Does our curriculum meet the needs of all our pupils? Is learning about ‘Black history’ in the lone month of October enough? Does the conversation need to shift from what we can do, to what is the impact of what we have done so far?


Lavinya challenges us to consider these and other questions. She will give some specific examples of black history that could push the conversation on and argue that these could be and should be embedded within the National Curriculum.

This webinar will enable us to consider the impact of our curriculum on all our children and what we can do practically to ensure that the curriculum that we provide is accessible to everyone.

Lavinya is a writer, activist, and Founder and CEO of The Black Curriculum. Graduating with a first class from SOAS in 2019, she has most recently authored a paper exploring Maroon ecology in Jamaica and Brazil. Lavinya was recently named as one of the Sunday Times 50 Women of the Year and was awarded Trailblazer of The Year by Hello Magazine, as well as featuring in Vogue, and GQ for her activism.

Time: 3.45pm to 5.15pm
