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?
As a school we have adopted the 'No Outsiders' ethos in all aspects of life; with our children, in communication with parents and in our wider Bilton Junior School Community. We are integrating this with our own values. By embracing these principles, our school is a safer place for all, where no child or member of our community will be treated as an outsider.
How we will achieve this ethos?
Bilton C of E Junior School is a place of belonging and inclusion.
What is 'No Outsiders'?
The No Outsider's vision is for inclusive education, promoting community cohesion to prepare young people and adults for life as global citizens. Here is a short video explaining more from the No Outsiders founder, Andrew Moffat.
As a school, we are incorporating No Outsiders lessons and book suggestions into our own PSHE lessons once every half term. The intentions of this are to allow the children in our school to access this ethos alongside their personal, social and emotional developments. This will allow them to understand themselves, their community and the wider world on a much broader scale and prepare them for the unknowns that may befall them in later life.
