A Stevenage infant school has put together a summer exhibition which explores routes and journeys that led pupils and staff to where they are.

Woolenwick Infant and Nursery's ‘Routed in Stevenage – Stories from our Hometown' celebrates the school's commitment to being actively anti-racist and showcases the learning from the whole school over the course of the year.

It takes in several strands including portraiture, family histories, clay masks, map installation, heart installation and books of Greater Representation.

Parent Tracey Brotherton said the exhibition was "an inspiring display of strength and diversity,” while another mum Katharine Johnson added:  “As a multicultural and multiracial family, we really appreciate the school’s efforts to be an actively anti-racist school.”
