Conscious Inclusion

At St James Primary School, our aim is

  • To create a school where all pupils can thrive together 
  • To understand that diversity is about recognising and respecting differences to create an inclusive environment rooted in openness and humility 
  • To have courage and knowledge to be able to discuss and combat racism and discrimination
  • To ensure that diversity and inclusion includes a curriculum that liberates and empowers pupils

We aim to do this through

  • Provision of an inclusive curriculum, drawing on the rich heritage of our multicultural society across all subjects and throughout the year 
  • Teaching and learning accurately represents Britain’s diverse past and the society in which we live today 
  • Promote, through teaching, workshops and external speakers, an anti-racist and proactive approach, challenging all forms of bias 
  • Promote high aspirations and opportunities for all children, addressing any inconsistencies found through close monitoring 
  • Develop links and draw on expertise from within the local community
