History Faculty Focus
October 2020 marks the official recognition of Black History Month in the United Kingdom, a period dedicated to celebrating the fantastic contributions of black people to our society and community.
In acknowledgement of this, the History department at Paignton Academy have made it a central focus in our students’ learning for this week. Each year group has had an assembly delivered to raise awareness and all lessons for the week have started with information on a key person in that field.
The aim was for our students to understand that black history did not begin with slavery and they have shown great understanding and consideration.
