BAME ACHIEVEMENT

Introduction

Haringey has the biggest gap in the country at GCSE between higher achieving White British students and lower achieving BAME groups, especially Black Caribbean students. Closing the achievement gap for our BAME students is a top priority for HEP.

We are asking all our schools to sign up to the Black Caribbean and BAME Achievement Pledge. We want our schools to display the pledge proudly in school and make a reality of the 8 commitments.
