Bilton C of E Junior school is proud to adhere to the Equality Act 2010. We believe that everyone has the right to be treated fairly and with respect, and that all children have the right to access their education without risk of prejudice. For that reason we are a No Outsiders school.
To support the valuable work we do in school to promote the children's' understanding of No Outsiders, we have set Bronze, Silver and Gold challenges for the classes to work on. For Bronze children need to be able to tell anyone who asks what No Outsiders is. For Silver they need to show they understand No Outsiders through their actions, particularly at lunchtimes; and for Gold classes have been challenged to come up with their own ideas about how they can continue to promote No Outsiders in our school and also across the community. Please ask your child about No Outsiders - can they tell you what it's all about?
‘The ‘no outsiders’ curriculum enables pupils to talk maturely about accepting difference. Comments from pupils included: ‘You should not discriminate against others for being different’, and ‘It does not matter if someone is white, black, gay, or if they are from a different culture, everybody has the right to be included.’ OFSTED February 2018
Character development is the core of the rich curriculum, that facilitates academic progress and nourishesspiritual development. The ‘No outsiders’ philosophy shines out. All forms of difference and diversity in andbeyond the school are treasured.
