Stonewall Champions

Mrs Courtier our Headteacher and Mrs Bazeley our Deputy Headteacher have attended training for us to become Stonewall Champions.
We celebrate diversity in our school and are pleased that they will be working with all staff to make sure staff and pupils celebrate difference.
As part of the School Champions we can now apply for Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. These awards give greater recognition to schools that tackle bullying and celebrate diversity. We will keep you updated on our progress.

Equality Team News

In the Summer Term 2015 we formed our own Equalities Team supported by Mrs Courtier our Headteacher and Mrs Bazeley our Deputy Headteacher. As a small school we like to consider ourselves to be one big happy family. We are aware that we are all different; therefore we want to celebrate diversity while making sure that all members of our community are treated with the respect they deserve. As a team we want to make sure that all pupils, staff and parents are happy within our school community.

We are going to present an assembly in school in September where we are going to launch a poster competition to promote diversity. These posters will be displayed around our school to celebrate differences.

As a school we are aware of issues around bullying, racism and LGBT equalities issues. We feel strongly that through educating our community we will help to make sure differences are celebrated and that we can all be proud of who we are and what we believe in.

Racism and bullying is not welcome in our school. We do not allow bullying or racist behaviour; all pupils are aware of this and know that this behaviour is unacceptable.

We want to congratulate Bath & North East Somerset Council on their news below. As a school we want to be ambassadors for celebrating difference. We intend to join the Stonewall School Champions Programme.

BANES Equality Team News

Bath & North East Somerset Council has been awarded first place in the 2015 Stonewall Education Champions Index. This is a huge achievement not just to our core group of staff, partners and young people who have put together the evidence for our entry, but to all the children & young people, teachers and other professionals who have been working hard to tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying, and to make Bath and North East Somerset a more inclusive place, where people can be themselves. I want to say a big thank you and congratulations to all those who have been involved.

Another piece of good news is that B&NES Council and Chew Valley School have just been selected as Stonewall National Training partners. This means that during the Autumn term we will be offering schools the opportunity to attend training and become Stonewall School Champions. This will help us to share the very best practice across all schools including how we can best support transgender pupils. So look out for dates that will be circulated very soon.
