Raising The Game at St Luke's

Raising the Game: Achievement of Black Caribbean Pupils in Lambeth is a two-year project which aims to tackle the 7-10% academic attainment gap and disproportionately high exclusion rates that Black Caribbean pupils in the borough face. 

The ‘Raising the Game’ project is based on extensive research running in selected Lambeth schools to improve outcomes at all key stages, to raise aspirations and to reduce exclusions for Black Caribbean pupils who underachieve in relation to their peers nationally and locally. 

The programme is being run and led by headteacher and leadership teams who are determined to tackle this issue at all levels. Schools have been selected based on the capacity, commitment and strength of their leaders as well as those that are diverse and focused on equality for all. 


 Aim High
Aim High acts as an integral strand of LSP Working Group, Raising The Game. Aim High focuses on giving pupils of all ages the chance to meet inspirational, highly-successful black individuals from a range of professional and academic backgrounds. 
Aim High - Primary 2020
In February 2020, the Lambeth Schools Partnership once again ran Aim High Primary at Stockwell Primary School, marking the fourth Aim High week of events since September 2018. Over the course of the week, we welcomed more than 650 pupils from years 2 – 6 from 23 Lambeth primary schools, as well as 70 inspirational Black professionals and academics.

These speakers included representatives from the African Caribbean Medical Mentors Association (ACMM), educators, lawyers, economists, storytellers, a vet, a member of Mensa, a police officer, an actress, a child psychologist, a fashion designer, a journalist, political members, senior Lambeth staff and many more.

Diversifying The Curriculum

Diversifying The Curriculum is a vital component of Raising The Game, a project aimed at tackling the 7-10% academic attainment gap and disproportionately high exclusion rates that Black Caribbean pupils in the borough face. Diversifying The Curriculum focuses on the importance of creating a diverse curriculum to improve educational outcomes for children and young people across Lambeth.
This involves incorporating stories, facts and information reflecting Black Caribbean history, experience and culture. This inspires interest and excitement amongst all pupils in relation to Black Caribbean history and culture, and in doing so encourages Black Caribbean pupils to have a stronger sense of pride about their heritage. 

Curriculum Development

Lambeth Schools Partnership has recruited 5 Primary and 5 Secondary School Curriculum Developers to inspire content diversity within curriculums across Lambeth.
