Stephen Lawrence Day is an opportunity for schools, young people and communities to get involved in activities that bring Stephen’s legacy to life. Activity can take place on or around the day itself at a time that best suits the school. We have developed a comprehensive suite of resources that schools can use, including assemblies, tutor groups materials and linked classroom activities which are appropriate to different age groups and social contexts.
Through our schools work, we aim to:
- Provide every school-age child and young person with age and contextually appropriate opportunities to learn about Stephen Lawrence, his life and legacy
- Celebrate and teach children the importance of respecting diversity, equality and inclusion
- Reinforce the skills that children need in order to challenge discrimination and racism
- Reflect on how we can ‘Live Our Best Life’
All resources for schools are free to access. Find out more
