In our Christian family, we are all loved by God.
Our vision statement explains, we are committed to ensuring that all children are enabled to flourish, reach their potential. For our school, this means not simply treating everybody the same but understanding and tackling the different barriers which could lead to unequal outcomes for different groups of pupils in school, whilst celebrating and valuing the achievements and strengths of all members of the school community.
We believe that equality at our school should permeate all aspects of school life and is the responsibility of every member of the school and wider community. Every member of the school community should feel safe, secure, valued and of equal worth. At Hoole St Michael CE Primary School, equality is a key principle for treating all people fairly and creating a society in which everyone has the opportunity to fulfil their potential – irrespective of their gender, ethnicity, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation, age or any other recognised area of discrimination.

Embracing Diversity at Hoole St Michael C of E Primary School
At Hoole St Michael C of E we recognise the importance of education in laying the foundations for a culturally inclusive society that embraces differences. We deliver a diverse curriculum that supports and celebrates inclusivity and diversity, in line with our school vision and the European Youth Charter on Inclusivity and Diversity in Education. Our teaching is underpinned by our Christian values: for example those of friendship, justice, wisdom, and compassion and also through our British values of mutual respect, individual liberty, tolerance and democracy.
We encourage full cultural inclusion in school through a range of strategies. These include ensuring that children are given examples and content from a variety of cultures; helping children to have a factual understanding of different cultures and traditions, free from prejudice; tailoring teaching to meet the needs of the children, ensuring the inclusion of all and enabling all children to flourish; challenging viewpoints and creating a culture where all children are supported; and promoting a concern for others, challenging injustice and inequality and engaging in charity work and fundraising in local, national and international contexts.
