Race and Social Justice
As our nation grows more diverse, there has never been a better opportunity for us to learn to live respectfully together and benefit from one another's wisdom and experiences
Marsh Green School is proud to be a part of Barking and Dagenham's Race and Social Justice Initiative.
Agreeing to fulfill the aims of the Race and Social Justice Charter means that we will make continual and intentional efforts towards ensuring that every member of our school community feels valued and appreciated.
We are fortunate to be part of a school that is both diverse and vibrant. Therefore, it's important for our racial diversity to be celebrated in a way that brings about holistic benefits for everyone in our school community. Doing so produces long-lasting change and opens the door to endless possibilities!

Marsh Green Celebrates Windrush 75!
“ The Windrush generation are part of a long history of migration to Britain, going back millennia. When looking at significant events in British history, just as young men were called upon to defend our freedoms, it is vital to this nation’s story that we also remember those who were prepared to give up so much to help a country in need - the Britain we have today: the doctors, teachers, nurses, the culture, food, music would not be possible without those who choose to make a new life here - and for this, everyone of us should be thankful.” Mrs Bell - History Lead

Maryum in 5EL helped Marsh Green win 'Daggers Does Diversity 2023' for the second year running!
This January a competition was held for all Barking and Dagenham school children to design the Daggers Does Diversity 28th January 2023 Matchday Programme Cover.
Children needed to think carefully about what diversity meant to them as well ensure that their entries were eye catching and including an element of football.
Alongside Maryum, Faizah in Year 6 was chosen as an official runner up alongside additional winners from different year groups. Each runner up also received two tickets to the match. Many attended with friends and family.
