Testimonial – Diversity Week

Testimonial – Diversity Week

"I wanted to say thank you [to Ms Horsborough] for all your efforts towards introducing and promoting diversity to the kids last week. It was such a meaningful week, and was equally appreciated by the children and the parents. This can be a nuanced topic but it’s so important to introduce these principals of inclusion and equality early.  This initiative has hopefully laid a positive foundation on which the children will continue to build. [My son] has come home excited about all that he’s learned about diversity, and wants to grow up to be an explorer. He also seems more cognisant of biases, and picked up a book we’ve owned for years labelled “books for bright boys”, asking why it’s labelled as such, since “the girls in my class like fire engines too”.  We’ve discussed equality and inclusion at length at home, and appreciate that he’s hearing those messages at school as well. Thank you again for always being open and for all your efforts, they’re really appreciated. You’re instilling a real love of learning in [my son!]"
