Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Intent Statement


At Catton Grove Primary School, we have eleven school ‘Core Values’ which underpin the vital importance of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and what those principles mean to us as a school. We encourage all of our pupils and staff to look at themselves through a DEI lens and to reflect this into the school and wider community where it can be celebrated. We are a large primary school in Norfolk with a diverse population of pupils with varying protected characteristics (under the Equality Act 2010). We strive to ensure that children are able to celebrate their own characteristics as well as each other’s with curiosity and understanding. 


Our vision is to view the school through the eyes of its pupils in order to embed an approach that challenges biases and encourages an inclusive community. At our school, we have designed a curriculum that is culturally inclusive, with role models of varying protected characteristics (Equality Act 2010) so that children see themselves in their learning and their surrounding environment. We want all of our children to achieve a strong sense of belonging which will encourage them to be more passionate and focused learners who want to achieve highly.


Throughout their Early Years and Primary School journeys, we want our children to develop the skills that they need to be kind and understanding young people with a wealth of worldly knowledge. We want our children to have a vast array of opportunities and experiences as we know that by doing so, children will have a greater understanding of people of diverse backgrounds and different stories. By the time our pupils head to secondary school, we want them to be empowered with knowledge so that they can continue to celebrate the wonderful diversity surrounding them and ready to gently challenge others when they need reminding.
