Culture and Diversity at Days Lane

At Days Lane, we foster an ethos of inclusion and equality of educational outcomes for all pupils. We recognise that the local demographic is not as divese as the wider locailty and therefore we plan opportunities for children to be exposed to, learn about and apprecaite cultures and religions, in order to prepare children for life in modern Britain.

Diversity Awards

We are delighted to have received our bronze diversity mark report, from our autumn term assessment visit, which captures the school’s commitment to helping children develop their cultural awareness and our drive to support all children to achieve their very best. This can be accessed below: 

Mr Lang and Mrs Farmer attended the 2022 Diversity Awards in October, which was hosted at Harris Primary Academy – Chafford Hundred. Days Lane were finalists in two categories (Teacher of the Year and Honourable Mention) and I am delighted to say that we won the Honourable Mention award for our whole school commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion. This is an excellent achievement by all the staff and children at Days Lane. 

Parent Voice

The below quotes were taken from an interview that took palce between a selection of parents and Anthony Pelttier (Diversity Mark Assessor):

  • “I’m struck by the number of displays on different issues and values around the school and the way the children are really encouraged to embody these values. Often at home, the children will talk about which school values they are showing that day”
  • “We have always been treated with respect, encouraged to share our views, and included in every aspect of school life. Our children have always felt that their family is represented in the school and have always been given opportunities to share their lives and their family with their classes”.
  • “Last year during Black History Month, I was honoured to be asked to come to the school and be interviewed by a couple of the children where I gave them an insight into my Jamaican black ground and heritage”.
