At Christleton Primary School we aim to teach the children to recognise and accept difference.
There are no outsiders. We are all different and we know that this is something that should be celebrated.
'No Outsiders' is a programme which aims to educate children about diversity within our communities and addresses issues such as sexism, ageism, race and different types of families. It is taught to each year group through the use of age-appropriate books such as 'And Tango Makes Three', '10 Little Pirates' and 'Dreams of Freedom'.
The key values of No Outsiders are
As a school we take our duty to prepare for life in modern Britain seriously. In school and their future workplace they will be working alongside peers and colleagues of different race, religion, gender, age, disability and sexual orientation.
The current political climate and acts of terrorism have generated a great deal of anger and division within certain communities and groups in society.
It is paramount that future generations are able to accept differences, accept the views of others and treat each other with respect, even if they disagree. We expect the children to express their views with kindness and consideration for the feelings of others.
Our key message is that we are all equal and we all belong, we are all insiders, there are no outsiders in our school.
The No Outsiders materials help us to deliver the The Equality Act (2010) to our children in an age appropirate way.
The Equality act is British Law and protects people from discrimination in the workplace and wider society.
It refers to following ‘protected characteristics.’
- Religion or belief
- Sexual orientation
- Marriage and civil partnership
