Racial Justice, Equality and Diversity

“By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” (John 13:35)

  

The above verse, taken from the Gospel of John, is central to the St Edmund's Catholic School mission to ensure all are loved, listened to, challenged and inspired.

The command to love our neighbour extends to all human beings irrespective of race, ethnicity, culture, or background; as Christ’s disciples, our love for one another will ensure that all members of our College community are held to be equal and are treated with dignity and respect.

We aim to challenge bias, discrimination, stereotyping and any other conduct that is prohibited by or under the Equality Act 2010, that can lead to racial injustice or inequality and will work to embed anti-racist practice into all areas of our work, to create a more equitable and inclusive community.

 

‘Love one another as I have loved you.’

John 13:34.

 

INTERNATIONAL DAY



Every year we celebrate international day where the children come to school dressed in traditional clothing from their country and parents bring in food to share with others. We are extremely proud of our multi cultural school. God has blessed us with a rich cultural diversity and we take every opportunity to celebrate our heritage.



‘Praise the Lord, all nations! Extol him, all peoples! For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord! ‘

Psalm 117:1-2

The promotion of human dignity is the foundation of Catholic social teaching at St Edmund's Catholic Primary School. We aim to educate our young people as to what needs to be rejected as wrongful and unworthy, and celebrate our common humanity.

We aim to address the cumulative effects of past and present inequities to eliminate disparities and enable all our pupils to flourish. We believe that this can be achieved through the education of the whole person throughout the whole curriculum.

 As an expression of Christ’s love, we support a vibrant school with full equality that embraces diversity and allows for equitable opportunity for all; together we celebrate the diversity that enriches and unifies our community.
