Inclusion and Equality of Opportunity

At NSA we aim to provide a learning environment that values the individuality of each child and teaches children to value their own individuality and those of others. We provide a caring, family environment that supports children and teaches children develop their sense of belonging.

Across the curriculum, children are taught about life in a diverse society, in which children are able to see their place in the local, regional, national and international community.

We provide positive non-stereotyping information about different groups of people regardless of gender, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, religion and age. These are taught within the PSHE and RE curriculum, as well as through assemblies and by working with targeted groups in school such as POW (Power of Women) and Positive Footprints.

The PSHE curriculum has been planned systematically to improve our understanding and promotion of diversity. The rationale behind this has been outlined further in our PSHE policy.
