Independence Days

School Development Plan Focus

To continue to actively promote a whole-school culture in relation to racial equality in which commonalities are identified and celebrated, difference is valued and nurtured and pupils are encouraged to be agents for change.

As part of our commitment to making St Catherine’s an actively anti-racist school, we have formed a Racial Equality, Diversity & Justice Working Party, formed of parents, staff and governors. One action from this Working Party was to celebrate the Independence Days of countries which form the ethnic background of pupils within our school community.

Throughout the year, we are learning about different countries, their culture and celebrating their unique features. Pupils and parents are invited to contribute to the information presented, as well as sharing artifacts, clothes, pictures and even food from their heritage.

Below are our Powerpoints celebrating St Cath’s rich and diverse community.
