Black Lives Matter at Invictus

Dear Community,

We are deeply saddened by the tragic unnecessary senseless death of George Floyd.

We the Invictus family are fundamentally committed to the Black Lives Matter movement and will strive for positive change.

Being situated in the middle of London road we fully embrace our diverse community. The Academy is here for a reason, a purpose, to write the future of our young people and to embody the beating heart of Croydon.

We will endeavour to further educate one another and improve the life chances of our young people.

We believe in positive role models, our children growing up to be academic business minded people, graduates and having safe, happy and fulfilling lives.

The Invictus family have joined together as one to stand against racism and inequality.

The Invictus staff have already begun to review the curriculum, challenge the meaning of unconscious bias to raise the profile of how black history as well as future texts are taught and conveyed through PSHE, tutor time projects, written work and intellect. We have delivered powerful assemblies, albeit virtually on Black Lives Matters, Windrush day, aspirations and ambition. We want to bring the positives of the real world and what it can mean to the classroom through a further improved, refined type of lens.

Our Aims for the future:

Aim 1: To create a clear anti-racism Charter that is known to all members of the academy

Aim 2: To designate and train individuals to act as co-ordinators / champions of anti-racist/multi-cultural education

Aim 3: To carry out regular checks and updates to ensure that both multi-cultural and anti-racist educational approaches are being implemented within the curriculum and our, policies and procedures

Aim 4: To use our curriculum, tutor time, assemblies and school-wide events/celebrations to promote positive images of, and responses to, all cultures and communities in our diverse community

Through this website we will endeavour to celebrate the future of our Invictus children and reach out to our community.   We are so proud of our students and staff body. We are committed to ensuring that our students' generation take greater strides forward to become a young dynamic group of professionals who are equipped to begin their journey in an equal society - but it starts with us here first.  This page will be dedicated to the success stories of our young black students and to equality across our Academy for all.

Join the Harris Invictus family to ensure that we give our children the best education, the best enrichment and the best support from our parents, carers and wider community.  

We start by saying NO to racism.

We do not tolerate this at Invictus - ever and we commit to actively reviewing and promoting equality and diversity in absolutely everything we do.

Ms Bergin

Principal

We Know. We Can. We Will.

We all need...... 

Positive Role models to provide a vision, and visual proof, for who we aspire to be.

The most successful people in life are those who find lessons and inspiration in the success and failure of others. Role models can drastically impact our world view, behaviour, and growth...... Everyone needs positive role models.
