St Bartholomew’s statement on the killing of George Floyd June 2020

 St Bartholomew’s Primary School stands united with the family, and friends, of George Floyd, who was                             unlawfully killed last week, in Minnesota, USA.

As a school community, we condemn any form of racism, discrimination and inequality.

We believe that all people are created in the image of God, and we respect and rejoice in the uniqueness of each and every child. We promise to work with parents, as first educators of their child, their wider families, and the community, to teach our children that we are all equal in the eyes of God.

Jesus said:

Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you are also to love one another.’ (John 13:34)

As teachers, parents, and adults, who have such a great influence on the formation of young people, we must support our children to make the right choices, and to follow the right path so we can all live in harmony, regardless of our race, gender, age, sexuality or background.

We must live a life that sets a good example to our children, we must be aware of the power of our words and actions, and we ask all in our community to help and guide us.
