At Cledford Primary School our core purpose is to prepare pupils to become successful young people and adults in a modern society. We aim to support pupils to develop the character and personal qualities which help to prepare them for life in the 21st century.
We want to deliver a curriculum that enables our children to understand and respect the benefits that exist in a society where difference and diversity are celebrated. We want our children to champion inclusion, to feel that they are never an outsider and to welcome all that they meet. The principle of equality is that everyone is treated fairly without suffering discrimination or prejudice.
We are excited to have introduced at Cledford a programme called ‘No Outsiders’, a resource to promote equality for all sections of the community. This aligns with our aim that children leave Cledford Primary School confident about living in a community full of rich diversity and difference. ‘No Outsiders’ is a proactive approach to encourage the children to accept, acknowledge and respect each other. It complements perfectly our school rules to ‘Be Ready, Be Respectful and Be Safe’.
‘No Outsiders’ uses a progressive range of 35 picture books through which all children from reception up to year 6 are taught about diversity.
