Karen has been Deputy Head Teacher at Lawrence CP School for the last 19 years. One of her many roles is subject lead for PSHE which has made her especially interested in the Roar! for Diversity campaign. She is also a mum of two daughters and has recently become a grandmother for the first time.
Two major sporting organisations – the Premier League and ECB – joined forces to launch the Roar! for Diversity competition and school resources last week. Lawrence Community Primary School in Liverpool was chosen for the inspirational inaugural lesson where the pupils received an unexpected, but welcome, surprise from a number of sporting stars. The school’s deputy head Karen Ford reports on the day and describes how the new resources will help the school’s diverse community.
