We believe that our schools and settings are key to tackling racism and other forms of discrimination. We will support all Lewisham schools and settings in their commitment to standing against racism and injustice, alongside and in solidarity with the local and global Black community.
At Downderry Primary School we believe that the diversity of our population and workforce is one of our greatest strengths. This is reinforced through our values education which includes: equality, respect, understanding and forgiveness.
