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.
All of the children have taken part in our anti-bullying week in November . During this week the children learned about the experiences of people who have suffered from racism at some points in their lives and how it has affected them.
During this week, many of the KS2 children have told us that they would like to train as antibullying ambassadors through the Diana Award charity and when the training starts in the in the spring term, we shall get started.
In the meantime, our children are working on an anti bullying pledge that will be displayed through the school. This will sit alongside the bully-proof shield that Angel in Year 6 created for us last year. We display this on all of the doors in our school to show our commitment to treating everyone with 'love' in our school.
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.
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.
