My Name Is Campaign
Race Equality Week marks the launch of the #MyNameIs campaign to raise the importance of getting someone’s name right.
Mispronunciation of a name usually starts for children at school and continues through to the workplace. This can affect self-esteem and children often do not feel comfortable to correct their teachers.
Taking the time to learn the phonetic spelling of a name can help all children and staff to feel valued and respected. Please take the time to think about whether you are using the correct pronunciation of first names and surnames for pupils and staff.
