Hair Equality - the Black Hair revolution

Hair Equality – the Black Hair revolution

Overview

Race-based hair discrimination has been illegal in the UK since the 2010 Equalities Act, yet it still happens in schools. Black students may internalize Eurocentric beauty standards and be told that their hair textures and hairstyles are inappropriate or unattractive. The Equality & Human Rights Commission is monitoring the situation. However schools and young people can take action, such as signing up to the UK’s first Black hair code, The Halo Collective’s Halo Code. By adopting this, schools are taking a stand to ensure that no member of their community faces barriers or judgements because of their Afro-textured hair.

Diversity and inclusion help children learn to empathise with people who are different from them. It makes all young people better learners, allowing them to understand various subjects from multiple points of view. By having access to educational content, each child is able to fully participate in their own learning, which provides them with the skills and resources for later life. At each key stage, we have used the National Curriculum, providing links and examples of how inclusion and diversity can be delivered through a range of subjects or as bespoke lessons as part of the inspire and inform steps of Youth Social Action.
