We are committed to treating others equally at our school within our Christian school value of Love. We use collective worship sessions to talk about the lives and achievements of leading members of our society and we have dedicated a display in our hall to honour their achievements.
Each year we hold an antibullying week. The focus this year will be led by our Learning ambassadors and our L4L ambassadors. During this week we shall remind the children of how we protect ourselves from bullies at home and online.
Our recent artist study focused on the artist Grayson Perry.He grew up in Essex and has won awards for his ability as an artist and he has become well known as a television presenter who promotes art and issues surrounding gender .
Grayson Perry is a member of the Royal Academy is well known for his ceramics so all of the children in the school created our own pots with the help of a local potter, Linda Morris. Each class made their own pot and then we made a school which contains the school's Christian values of love, care, courage and truth.
We use the learning in the curriculum and collective worship sessions to learn about different types of families. Each week we have dedicated section on our newsletter called Keeping Our Children Safe. This gives advice and links to useful organisaations giving support to children.
We ahve a number of refugee families at our school. They are children currently living in our village and their home countries spread across the world. refugee children are suported in our school. The provide support in many ways so that the children can access education inside and outside our school environment.
What do our school community think about our response to equality and diversity?
We have asked the children, parents and staff what they think about equality in our school and a equality group will be set up to have a look at the results and plan our future pathway.
