Equality at Wallace Fields Junior School
At Wallace Fields Junior School, we strive to promote equality, understanding and celebrate multi-culturalism in all its forms through our PSHE sessions, assemblies, choice of literature, international links to schools and our multi-cultural days. We feel it is important to reflect upon the injustices and inequalities that are present across the world and help create an anti-racist society by providing an education for our children.
In September 2020, Christiana Owolabi and Miss Marriage held discussions on anti-racism and inclusion. The aim is to empower the children by learning about the skills and tools required to create an anti-racist and inclusive society, which celebrates diversity in all its forms.
October is Black History Month in the UK, an event that has been celebrated nationwide for more than 30 years. Throughout the year, we believe it is important to acknowledge the historical context of Black History and celebrate the contributions that black people have made over many generations.
At Wallace Fields Junior School, we feel it is important to celebrate different heritages, cultures, faiths, abilities and genders throughout the year by using a variety of literature, assemblies, PSHE, geography, music, art, geography, history, and Faith and Philosophy discussions to develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of the world around them.
Here is our Equality policy.
