School Leadership

Community Cohesion

How four schools in east London are tackling their duty to promote community cohesion, and involving their local communities in different ways. Professor Kathryn Riley visits a mixture of primary and secondary schools in Newham, east London, to see how they are fulfilling this duty within their ethnically diverse communities. Headteachers and other experts explain how the schools can best promote community cohesion, with suggestions including regular community newsletters, monthly meetings with distinct ethnic and social groups, and parenting classes to support children's learning. Tips and advice are also provided by community religious leaders and the police.
