Primary School

we are all different and we all belong

We aim for all children in our school to be happy and excited about living and learning in a community full of difference and diversity. We need to create classroom environments where no child feels left out; every child needs to be taught that they belong.

We know that as children mature, they can sometimes learn that difference is a barrier to their sense of belonging. Our aim is to remove that barrier; we want children to see that difference is a positive and not a negative. After all, we are all different. 

To ensure that our children embody this attitude, we have applied the principles of the 'No Outsiders' approach, using picture books through which our children learn about equality and diversity. From our Reception classes through to our Year 6 classes, we use a range of texts, including picture books, to stimulate discussion and to promote an empathic approach to the world we live in. Our curriculum is planned and delivered so that all of our children develop age appropriate knowledge and understanding. This in turn supports their understanding of the world in which they live and nurtures positive, respectful and inclusive attitudes.
