Diversity

Everyone here at Bridgewater feels immensely fortunate to have a school community as diverse and vibrant as ours. We are proud to provide education to students from a wide social, cultural and economic background. This not only reflects our inclusive approach, but also reflects the diverse community within which we are based.

Ours is a school which values individuality, where we are interested in what makes us all different and not just what makes us the same, a school where individuals count.

The development of pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding has always been integral to our family ethos and our school ensures a safe and nurturing environment where students are encouraged to learn sensitivity to each other’s needs and the needs of the world outside school, a world in which we believe that every individual has responsibility and can make a real difference.

The result is a dynamic and diverse community where children from all backgrounds can flourish and thrive.

 

Bridgewater School Anti-Racism Statement

We at Bridgewater School are clear that we reject racism and discrimination in all forms. We recognise that we have a role to play in sending a message that racism in any form can never be tolerated and, as such, we have a robust anti-racism policy which informs both our School Rules and our policy of equal opportunities employment.

Sadly racism exists and persists in society and we intend to play our part as best we can in changing this. To stand against racism means that all members of our community must be confident and bold enough to challenge racism. It means that we must also continue to reflect on our own actions and behaviours. To this end, we will engage further with those inside and beyond our community to understand their views and those of others on this topic and encourage families to get in touch with any ideas that they may have. We will also continue to consider ways in which we can further educate our community so that its members are empowered to act against racism.

We ask all in our community to join us in challeging racism and holding ourselves and others to account ensuring that we live up to our school belief that every individual counts.
