Diversity Working Party
The Diversity Working Party is looking to raise the profile of diversity and the protected characteristics amongst staff and student body.
This term we've chosen race/ethnicity as the protected characteristic to focus on. Each week tutors are delivering a form time activity designed to get students engaging with the protected characteristics and to celebrate the diversity in our community. We started with exploring all the countries our students and staff are connected to and made a live-updating Diversity Map, so students could see how many countries are represented within our school. Going forward we will be defining race and ethnicity, exploring links between ethnicity and culture and looking at issues of race/ethnicity discrimination in the news. In the summer term we want to continue the celebration of other cultures through an international fair.
