Manchester Gorton MP Afzal Khan has announced a new Diverse Curriculum Charter for schools in his constituency.

The initiative launched on December 9 and created in collaboration with The Black Curriculum presents an opportunity for primary and secondary schools across Manchester Gorton to develop and deliver a diverse and anti-racist learning experience for pupils.

Khan says he hopes the initiative “will encourage an even greater scrutiny of the curriculum and bring a renewed commitment to positive change.”

Khan, who is also the Shadow Deputy Leader of the House of Commons, said the contributions of Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic groups to society are often “eliminated not only from our telling of history but from all aspects of our teaching.

That is why I firmly believe that all children – no matter their race or background – should be given the opportunity to engage in a wide-ranging curriculum which truly reflects the make-up of British society today. The longer it takes to do this, the more we will deprive future generations of a well-rounded education that offers young people a rich sense of belonging and identity.”

“And while positive change can begin in our schools, ultimately it’s the Government who must review the national curriculum to ensure all young people are to benefit from a truly diverse education that is reflective of modern British society.”

A spokesman for The Black Curriculum said, “This Charter is an important stepping stone towards ensuring all young people feel a sense of identity and belonging in their school and the wider community. For us, this Charter signifies a change in attitude as schools begin to take a proactive approach to empower all of their young people.”

Garry Bridges, Councillor and Manchester City Executive Member for Children and Schools, said, “The education that children get at school shapes the way they see the world and their place in it. I’m pleased to support the Diverse Curriculum Charter as a necessary step to making sure that, diverse backgrounds are represented properly and that our education engages with diverse experiences in our curriculum.

Schools in our city have been leading the way on this agenda, and I think they will find this Charter a useful aid when looking at their resources and teaching.”
