The Black Child Agenda

About us

The UK's Only Independent Legal Advocacy Service for The Child & Family

The Black Child Agenda is an international multi-award winning organisation, supporting children and families who face discrimination, overt & covert racism, and permanent exclusion within mainstream education. Bullying & isolation is a major issue that black children face within UK school’s and usually goes unchallenged by those who are put in a position to safeguard children. 

Government data shows that Black children and young people who have SEN are disproportionately excluded from mainstream education compared to their counterparts.  Many of our cases find that despite many efforts by parents, Black children and young people are being systematically failed by the UK education system which in turn leads to the School’s to Prison Pipeline.

What is the Schools to Prison Pipeline?

The School-to-Prison Pipeline is a term which we first coined from the USA back in 2009, where there is  much more research that has been done and long term evidence on the impact of the harsh and often racist treatment of Black students in the education system.

The Schools to Prison Pipeline is a process through which students are pushed out of  formal education, based on racial bias and assumptions by leadership teams and teachers. The push out rate of Black pupils into Pupil Referral Units (PRU’s) then prisons is systemic.

In other words, it is a process of criminalising youth that is carried out by disciplinary policies and practices that put students into contact with law enforcement. Once they are put into contact with law enforcement for disciplinary reasons, many are then pushed out of the educational environment and into the juvenile and criminal justice systems.
