Windrush Day

June 22nd was Windrush Day so for last week’s upper school assembly we learnt about the Windrush Generation. Windrush Day is a time to remember the people who came to England from the Caribbean in 1948 to help the country rebuild after World War 2. These people were not welcomed kindly or treated as they should have been back then. Now we look back, learn, celebrate their contribution and thank them.

We watched a two videos from Newsround to understand what happened and what it must have been like. You can watch here:

At Lawford Mead we want everyone who joins us to feel welcome, valued and appreciated.
