Diversity and equality

We value diversity.

We learn to identify and to challenge privilege, stereotypes and unconscious bias.

We value what is gained by being when we share in and celebrate the heritage, the voices and the experiences of people from all backgrounds.

We recognise, and develop sensitivity to, the needs and experiences of people from all backgrounds.

Our curriculum represents the valuable contributions of figures from all backgrounds so our children can learn about and be inspired by their examples. We want our children to see themselves represented positively and aspire to the achievements of these role models.

We also teach our children about those whose experiences have been or remain historically-disenfranchised, why this has happened and empower them to shape their community to overcome these barriers in the future.

With these aims and values in mind, we continually evaluate our policies, our practice, our knowledge and our curriculum to ensure that we identify opportunities to improve the school.


The school is currently applying for the RACE charter mark and we are a signatory to the Race at Work Charter. We welcome the opportunity to involve the children, parents and wider community as the application process progresses.
