We are a No Outsiders School. 

Our school teaches that there are no outsiders because everyone is welcome.

We create classroom environments where no child feels left out; every child needs to be taught that they belong.

As children grow up, they can sometimes learn that difference is a barrier to friendship. Our aim is to remove that barrier; we want children to see that difference is a positive, not a negative. After all, we are all different: none of us is exactly the same; we are all unique. As our pupils move through school, we want them to explore their differences so that they feel comfortable in their own skin. Our pupils should know who they are and feel proud to be who they are, and also know that they are accepted without judgement. No child should feel that they have to change who they are in order to fit in.
