St Paul's Steiner

Diversity resources

As part of their work on diversity and inclusion at St Paul's, the Diversity Group has been  looking at our library and adding resources to ensure it is inclusive and promotes equality.

Here you will find a list of the books titles that have recently been purchased with funds from the St Paul's Community Group - SPCG - as well as the school budget.

The focus so far has been books with black protagonists, or that connect with Black history and promote anti-racism.

These books are now in the school library and in classrooms and kindergartens, and have supported the teaching during Black History Month.

Work on the library continues - the focus next will be on LGBTQIA+, followed by disability and neurodiversity.
