We are now seeing the third and in some cases the fourth generation of Black Caribbean pupils in schools in England
Their grandparents came from the Caribbean from the late 1940s,. Like other Black settlers before them, they hoped for a prosperous future for themselves and enhanced educational opportunities for their children.

It would be natural to expect those hopes to have been realised by now. This is not the case.’ (Ofsted 2002:1)

Over the past four decades national research has shown that Black Caribbean heritage pupils’ achievements persistently lag behind the average achievement of their peers and the gap is growing at the end of primary and secondary education.
Join us as we examine and explore the current situation for black Caribbean students in the UK education system and explore some solutions to address these longstanding issues.
