Farrah Serroukh

About me:

Throughout her career, Farrah has always worked hard to centre marginalised voices and keenly advocated for inclusive practices both within and outside of the education sector. An experienced teacher and senior leader, Farrah taught across all phases before moving into senior management where she led on Literacy, EAL, Ethnic Minority Achievement and Inclusion. Farrah has an MA in Bilingualism in Education and coordinates CLPE’s partnership and regional work. She co-leads on the research and development strand of CLPE’s work and is responsible for leading on and authoring CLPE’s Reflecting Realities Study. This is an Arts Council funded research project and is the first study of its kind in the history of UK publishing. The aim of the study is to quantify and evaluate the extent and quality of ethnic representation and diversity in children’s publishing in the UK. The Survey seeks to offer a benchmark and an ongoing quantifiable measure to allow all stakeholders to gauge advances made in this area and to keep the importance of inclusion and better representation at the forefront of the collective consciousness. In July 2019, she was awarded the UKLA Brenda Eastward Award in recognition of her work on Reflecting Realities.
