Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College took part in the Wear Red Day to show their support for the anti-racism message.

Students designed their own red cards and carried them in their blazer pockets to show their support.

The college’s deputy headteacher Emma Gundry said: “Inclusion and community are core values for Broadoak and we are delighted to show support for Wear Red Day.”

Pupils have also been enjoying lessons on Black History Month and assemblies to support the message and to encourage them to stand up to racism and other forms of prejudicial behaviour.
