Modern Britain is diverse and therefore, through our 'Everyone Welcome' approach and by providing an inclusive education, we aim to promote equality and community cohesion to prepare our young people for life as global citizens. 


Each half term, Mrs Sheppard and Miss Rogers look forward to delivering story sessions with every class across the whole school.  We have carefully selected a range of books for each year group which tackle discrimination, question stereotypes, develop self-acceptance and help children learn how to live alongside, and show respect for, a diverse range of people.
