TACTYC Statement of Support for the work of Liz Pemberton The Black Nursery Manager
TACTYC condemns the uninformed attack on the vital work that Liz Pemberton does to promote awareness and understanding of anti-racism and discrimination in her role as The Black Nursery Manager. We thank Liz for her valuable contribution to the Birth to 5 Matters guidance, which supports us all with our practice and provision for under-fives and Reception classrooms. Liz provides an essential informed, thought-provoking and supportive service to colleagues and practitioners working across the early years sector, which has obvious relevance to our wider society. Given the continuing evidence of the widespread lack of awareness of racist behaviour and the damage this can do, this important training and the messages shared should be welcomed and put into practice. TACTYC are actively working to promote anti-racism, anti-discrimination and inclusion embedded within all training of early years staff and welcome the insight and leadership shown by Liz Pemberton.Read more
