Diversity Workshops

Dear Parents / Carers,

I have organised some Trans-inclusion workshops for Year 8 students on Wednesday 20th June. The workshops will take place in my classroom for one hour.

The aim of these workshops is to give our students an opportunity to engage with issues around sexual orientation and gender identity in a safe and open environment.

The key messages are ones of kindness, respect and equality.

In our school we want students to feel free to express themselves and feel valued for their uniqueness.

The main focus of the workshops is to listen to LGBT volunteer role models whose powerful stories give an insight in to the experiences of LGBT people. A Question & Answer Session and interactive activities will follow, which will help develop students' empathy, understanding and acceptance, and challenge stereotypes and prejudice.

I hope they behave impeccably and enjoy the session.

Thank you for your support.

In celebration of the life of Alan Turing, members of Year 9 have been playing the Alan Turing edition of Monopoly. It is based on a hand-drawn version of the game which Alan played over 50 years ago. The original can be seen in the Bletchley Park Museum.

Everybody’s talking about Jamie! Drama / Diversity Trip opportunity:

Jamie New is sixteen and lives on a council estate in Sheffield. 

Jamie doesn’t quite fit in. 

Jamie is terrified about the future. 

Jamie is going to be a sensation. 

Supported by his brilliant loving mum and surrounded by his friends, Jamie overcomes prejudice, beats the bullies and steps out of the darkness, into the spotlight. 

This fearless, funny, fabulous brand new musical sensation hits London with catchy new songs by lead singer-songwriter of The Feeling Dan Gillespie Sells and writer Tom MacRae. 

Sixteen: the edge of possibility.  Time to make your dreams come true. 

“Touching, Funny, Joyous” THE OBSERVER.
