Campaigns Working on Social Justice in Education

The Black Curriculum

The Black Curriculum was founded in 2019 by young people to address the lack of Black British history in the UK Curriculum.

They believe that by delivering arts focused Black history programmes, providing teacher training and campaigning through mobilising young people, they can facilitate social change.

You can help by writing to the Secretary of State to request a meeting to discuss embedding Black history in the National Curriculum. Find out how to do this at

No More Exclusions

No More Exclusions works to bring about an end to the persistent race-disparities in school exclusions.

The movement consists of grassroots community activists, organisations and individuals, including teachers, trade unionists, social workers, lawyers, youth workers, faith leaders, local councillors, journalists, academics, researchers, SEND specialists, mental health practitioners, parent advocates, parents, and young people.

They are united to take radical and structural actions that will create a new inclusive model of education based on their values of inclusion, social justice, race equality and quality education for all.

Changemakers Lab is a 2 year programme working with a diverse group of courageous students aged 14-18 who want to campaign for reform in the education system to better reflect the needs and rights of young people.

The programme invites student activists aged 14-18 from different backgrounds in the UK to work together to research, understand and articulate meaningful campaigns for change in the education system, enhancing their activism through solidarity.

“Young people have the right to have a say in matters which affect them, we believe that means that we should be able to shape the education system which we spend so much time in.

We each have our own experiences in schools, whether we’re refugees, BAME, live with a disability, are queer, poor, have special educational needs, mental health concerns, or are just dreamers, one thing unites us and that is our youth.

We refuse to be silenced because we are young. We are stronger together, and this life is too important.”
