Valuing Equality, Celebrating Diversity - June was Pride Month
A change of logo and a rainbow flag flying outside the school were two initiatives suggested by the student-led Equalities Group to support of Pride Month.
An internationally recognised awareness campaign, Pride Month ran throughout June and celebrated the growing rights and freedom of expression for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Questioning (LGBTQ+) people.
The whole school community has been involved in a programme of activities leading up to Pride Month, including 'Diversity Role Models' (an organisation that promotes acceptance of people who identify as LGBQ) sessions for students and staff training on tackling examples of homophobic, biphobic and transphobic language within school.
Whilst students, staff, governors and parents alike have been encouraged to take part in the "I'm Proud" poster campaign; the school is now adorned with posters created by people who are happy to share something of which they are particularly proud, with the rest of the school community.
Mr Holmes has been supporting the Equalities Group: "We believe Pride Month is important because, as a school community, we value equality, actively promote inclusion and celebrate diversity all year round."
