Equality and Diversity

At The Green  we pride ourselves on delivering a broad and balanced curriculum that reflects on a wide variety of cultures, languages, races and ethnicities. We believe that a diverse aware and inclusive school reflects life in modern Britain and supports our children to understand that within difference lies strength. We understand that difference should be respected and celebrated by those who learn, teach and visit us.


The school is committed to treating all Trustees, staff, visitors, parents and pupils fairly and without discrimination based on the grounds of gender, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, political beliefs or practices, disability, marital status, family circumstances, age, spent criminal convictions, sexual orientation or any other grounds which may be deemed inappropriate.


How do we tackle discrimination at The Green?


We have set a clear vision and values which expect all our staff to act in a non-discriminating manner and be mindful to avoid actions that will be deemed as such to the public and our wider community. We have up-to-date and ratified policies which set out a clear message that discrimination is not tolerated. This includes the staff code of conduct, rights respecting behaviour, anti-bullying, safeguarding and child protection policies. We understand that it is unlawful to fail to make reasonable adjustments to overcome barriers to using services caused by disability. The governing body and school leaders involved in recruitment will avoid unlawful discrimination in all aspects of employment including recruitment, promotion, opportunities for training, pay and benefits, discipline and selection for redundancy. 


Through a structured PSHE curriculum offer, assemblies, workshops and visits, equalities are discussed with and taught to the children, exemplifying the British Values and school values that we believe in. Planning across all areas of the curriculum uses resources and case-studies which reflect diversity and challenge stereotypes.


School display space is used to promote awareness of protected characteristics, British Values and our own school charters and values as we feel that it is crucial to make these cornerstones of what our children are immersed in each day. We tackle discrimination through positive promotion of equality, by challenging bullying and stereotypes and by creating an environment which champions kindness for all. At The Green we believe that diversity is a strength  which should be respected and celebrated by those who learn, teach and visit us.


Promoting Inclusivity through the Protected Characteristics 

Our children are taught about the protected characteristics alongside the Fundamental British Values and our own school values. We use Picture News each week as focussed time across school and teach our children using the images below. These are displayed in school to support our children's understanding and are shown alongside high quality texts that reflect the same message. 


Our PSHE curriculum explores differences in sex, age, religion, belief, race and disability to support, develop and challenge our children's understanding of similarities and differences between people. 

Sexual orientation and civil partnership is explored through rich texts that are shared across the curriculum, both in PSHE lessons and during story time. 


Similarly through both our science and PSHE curriculum, children are taught about life cycles and that children and baby animals are born as a result of female pregnancy
