Equalities Team 2019/20
Please meet our new Equalities team for 2019/20. They are all very excited to get to work so watch this space exciting things coming soon.
This month we have been discussing what Equality means to us as a school community and what we can do to make our school a better place.
We have decided to take part in Anti-Bullying week 11th-15th November and this includes 'Odd Socks Day' where we will all be wearing our odd socks to show that its okay to be different. We will also be holding an assembly about Anti-Bullying and will be giving each class sock templates for the children to enter our odd sock competition.

Our Equalities team did a fantastic job holding our Anti-Bullying assembly. They showed a good understanding of what should be done if themselves or a friend is getting bullied and they shared this with the whole school. All the Equalities team took part in the assembly whether that was a speaking part or holding up a poster or speach bubble. We are very proud of them all.
On Tuesday 4th of February we will be holding an assembly to talk about 'Time to Talk day' which we are taking part in on Thursday 6th February. We are all very excited about this.
Tuesday 4th February 2020
Today our Equalities team took our morning worship to talk about mental health as part of mental health week 2020 and Time to Talk day which is on Thursday 6th February. They were all absolutely amazing talking about our feelings, what we can do to help ourselves and others and showing the children a video all about mental health.
We are incredibly proud of our Equalities team for all of their hard work. Well done team.

Following on from our Time to Talk assembly about the importance of mental wellbeing. The Equalitiews team would like to buy an Equalities Mascot (teddy), they plan for this mascot to be available for all children in school particularly those that may be having a bad day. We are holding a mufti day on the Friday 28th February to raise funds for this protect. There will also be a chance for the children to win prizes, as the team plan to hold a competition to design a T-shirt for the Equalities mascot to wear as well as naming the mascot too.
Thank you to everyone for your support,
The Equalities Team.
