Equity, Diversity and Inclusion

Back to Overview

We are committed as a Christian learning community to inclusion and the provision of opportunities for development on Jesus' statement that he came of offer 'life in all its fullness' (John 10:10). Bishop Ramsey School is an environment where every individual is enabled to fulfil their true potential. We envision an equitable, inclusive and diverse society where everyone feels valued and is able to succeed.

We aim to create a culture of belonging, through educating one another and learning about the rich, diverse school community that we are, as well as the wider globally diverse community we are a part of.

Equity, diversity and inclusion is an extremely important part of our school culture, reflected in our curriculum and pastoral support, in our collective worship gatherings and in the wide range of events and celebrations which form part of our annual calendar.  These include: Black History Month; LGBT History Month; Neurodiversity Week; Show Racism the Red Card; Stephen Lawrence Day; Cultural Week and Pride Month. These are just some of the examples which form part of the educational experience of our students at Bishop Ramsey so that they can experience and start to understand the world in a broader context, the world that they will ultimately be helping to shape for the future. A key publication which helps inform our school's ethos and the importance we place on valuing everyone as part of our EDI commitment as a Christian learning community is set out in guidance from the Church of England entitled Valuing All God's Children

Since September 2021 we have been working with the National Centre for Diversity and, at the same time, adopted the Halo Code as part of our approach and comittment to having an inclusive school uniform.
