The Halo Code

The Halo Code’ do – Snowdon Village has of course readopted the code for another academic year. 
The Halo Code recognises that, whilst we as educators feel as though we promote racial equality and challenge discrimination;
  • 58% of Black students experience uncomfortable comments or questions about their hair at school.
  • 1 in 4 Black adults had a negative experience at school in relation to their hair texture.
  • 46% of parents say their children’s school policy penalised Afro hair.
  • 1 in 5 Black women feel societal pressure to straighten their hair for work.
  • The Halo Code are working with schools, academy chains, and educational bodies to support them to adopt the UK’s first Black Hair Code.
The Halo Code explicitly protects students and staff who come to school with natural hair and protective hairstyles associated with their racial, ethnic, and cultural identities.
By adopting the Halo Code, schools are proactively taking a stand to ensure that no member of their community faces barriers or judgments because of their Afro-textured hair.

The website also includes ideas as to how you can celebrate the racial, ethnic, and cultural identities of your students, every single day.
