Celebrating difference is fundamental to our work in school, with children exploring a range of differences through an ‘Everyone is Equal’ week in February. A particular focus this week is on sexual orientation, with children across all year groups exploring carefully selected materials in class. As a priority, we invited Elle Barnes, LGBT ‘Educate and Celebrate’ to lead staff training and educate our staff on the breath of sexual orientations. In addition to this, our children also enjoy a family group session to explore individuality, uniqueness and difference through a creative stimulus. Throughout all our work on diversity and difference is a common thread that we are all children of God, made perfectly, with no mistakes!
“Through its work based on ‘Valuing All God’s Children’, staff and pupils embrace difference and promote respect for all – ‘everyone is equal and everyone is special’.”
