Equality and Diversity

At St Peter's, we are proud of our diverse community. We celebrate different faiths and cultures throughout the year and ensure that all children and members of the comunity are treated with respect and dignity.

St Peter's  Primary School seeks to ensure that no member of our school community, or any person through their contact with the school, will receive less favourable treatment on the grounds of perceived or real difference (protected characteristics). These include: race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, gender, marital status, responsibility for children or other dependents, disability, sexual orientation, gender reassignment or age.


Our pupils have a rich education that ensures that they are aware that each one of us is an individual and we all have a place in this world. We celebrate and learn about this in many ways. Our 'Understanding Christianity' syllabus covers many cultures and faiths, we have the Koran on display and invite local members of the community into our school to talk about their faith.

Our 'Jigsaw' scheme teaches us about diversity and RSE (Relationships Sex Education) We celebrate Mardi Gras and Pride (see image below) and teach the children that we are all different. Staff have also had training in dealing with pupils who are questioning their gender and place in the world.
