To provide an exceptional and innovative education in diversity, which enables our pupils to be proud of their individual identities. By enhancing children’s understanding of historical and current context, we develop a culture of embracing and celebrating our differences and similarities.
Sequencing and Progression
The diversity curriculum allows children to build on their understanding of the world around them as they progress from EYFS to Year 6. Key concepts such as racism, diversity, heritage, ethnicity and identity are revisited and consolidated throughout each year and across the year groups. Children build up a bank of knowledge about how diversity in the past and present impacts their own lives, their community and the wider world.
How we teach diversity at Trinity
In the Early Years, children begin to recognise how they are similar and how they are different to their friends. They explore what makes them special and unique and learn to value and cherish their identity. They learn that our differences are something to celebrate.
From Y1-6, children have a diversity lesson every half term. Within these lessons, there is a significant emphasis on the celebration of the children’s individual identities and they explore their own cultural heritage and ethnicity. Through diversity, PSHE and RWV, children will learn to recognise the diversity in their school and community and the positive impact this can have on their lives. Key concepts such as racism, diversity, heritage, ethnicity and identity are revisited and consolidated throughout each year and across the year groups. By enhancing children’s understanding of historical and current context, we develop a culture of embracing and celebrating our differences and similarities.
Through our diversity lessons, we encourage pupils to stand for what is right; address what is wrong; celebrate what makes them unique and value the things that we hold in common. Our diversity curriculum is designed to prepare our pupils to be confident and conscious global citizens who are passionate about making the world a better place for all.
