School diversity week – and on-uniform day set for July

This week is “School Diversity Week” and is a key opportunity to spread awareness of equality matters and diversity. Some year groups have had the opportunity to explore some of the topics of sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, disability, religion and gender as part of their planned personal development curriculum during tutorial time. June is also LGBT Pride month and is a further opportunity to highlight diversity and acceptance.

Students have been asking for a non-uniform day for some time now and we would like to do this and recognise these two events by hosting a Rainbow Friday whereby students are able to wear non-school uniform to support diversity, acceptance and equality.

Due to ongoing exams this week and celebrations for year 11 leavers we have decided to hold this on Friday 8th July 2022.

We will be collecting suggested donations of £1 for Rainbow Friday and using the funds for students in school.
