Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

About the School

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We believe that all pupils and members of staff should have the opportunity to fulfil their potential whatever their background, identity and circumstances.

We are committed to creating a community that recognises and celebrates difference within a culture of respect, tolerance and co-operation. We appreciate that a culture which promotes equality will create a positive environment and a shared sense of belonging for all who work and learn at St Crispin’s. We recognise that equality will only be achieved by the whole school community working together – our pupils, staff, governance and parents/carers.

As part of our dedication to developing a fully inclusive community, we are perpetually working on ways to celebrate our differences at St Crispin’s. We learn, discuss and celebrate, amongst others, Black History Month, LGBT History Month, Disability Pride Month, National Autism Awareness Month and International Stand up to Bullying day.

However, one off events are only a small part of what St Crispin’s do to promote diversity, equity and inclusion. We are constantly reviewing our curriculum to embed these values in out daily classroom practice, whether it be reviewing the diversity amongst authors studied in English, to ensuring all students have the same access to all sports in P.E and extra-curricular activities, to reviewing the way in which humanities teach and encourage reflection on events of the past.

The student leadership body play a huge role in ensuring the principle of equity, diversity and inclusion is promoted amongst the student body. For example we have a fully trained team of anti-bullying ambassadors, student led support groups, student led mentoring, and we are currently looking to recruit a team of Young interpreters to assist students who have recently arrived in the U.K.
