Pupils and staff in our school originate from all over the world. We are very proud of our diversity and seek to develop our understandings of each other's cultures and traditions. In our increasingly diverse society, community cohesion has never been more important. We seek to have common vision, a sense of belonging for all and for all stakeholders to have similar life chances. Lynch Hill School has a key role to play in ensuring every pupil achieves as well they can. Community cohesion is based on ‘a society in which strong and positive relationships exist and continue to be developed in the workplace, in schools and in the wider community’, and this is our aim.
Our school hosts a number of different cultures and we seek to learn about the ways in which we are similar whilst celebrating our differences, both through the curriculum and special themed events. Loud, colourful days and discos are held to celebrate the wide diversity that we enjoy. An effective approach to deal with incidents of prejudice, bullying and cultural issues has meant that pupils feel safe in our school as well as knowing that any problems that do occur will be dealt with swiftly and sensitively.
Our sense of community is developing through a number of initiatives. These include the individual school community as well as the UK and global communities. The school actively seeks to create opportunities for parents to come into school. Our Coffee Mornings are popular sessions with our parents and we will be adding more during the year.
