The GCHSS Diversity Group aims to celebrate all forms of diversity in society. Diversity is central to the school ethos. This is enshrined in the school’s Diversity and Equality Policy.
The Diversity Group aims:
1. To continue creating an inclusive culture:
- By promoting social inclusion attitudes and practices among SMT, teachers/staff members and students;
- By identifying the needs of students with specific needs and/or in particular circumstances and advocate on their behalf.
2. To promote inclusive attitudes and practices within the school and in the classroom (by creating activities which increase awareness) and challenge discriminatory attitudes and practices.
3. To promote the celebration of diversity in all its forms.
4. To promote the participation of all (irrespective of class, gender identity, age, ability/disability, sexual orientation, religious beliefs) students within the diversity team/school activities.
The Diversity Team is an opportunity for all students to organise events and develop their communication and leadership skills.
