We uphold our Trust’s mission, enabling all to flourish rooted in God’s love. For a child to do this, they need to feel that they belong and are a valued part of the school’s community. At Churchfield, we ensure all our pupils feel that they belong, in our school, in our curriculum and most importantly in the wider world.
We ensure our pupils are reflected in all that we do, in the curriculum we deliver, the resources we share and the displays in our school community. Diversity should flow seamlessly throughout our curriculum and our children exposed to different cultures, religions and races to enable them to understand the world we live in today and their place in it. Our curriculum choices have been carefully chosen to develop pupils’ understanding of diversity in their world. There are many parts of ‘belonging’ and as our journey progresses, we will continue to explore all areas, including:
Creating an environment in which children and young people feel they belong, feel valued and feel cared for is a whole-school responsibility.
