Be Unique Day
A day to celebrate our individuality and uniqueness! We came dressed to represent our identity and celebrated each other.
At South Wilford Primary School we are committed to helping children to understand differences and similarities in our society. Our School is committed to anti-discriminatory practice to promote equity of opportunity and to value diversity for all children and families.

Diversity in our literature
We have a wide range of reading books that reflect all aspects of diversity. Our aim is for all children to see themselves in our fiction and non-fiction books and we are committed to making sure we are aware of the most wonderful, diverse literature out there. We seek advice from our community and other professionals to to ensure we represent race, gender, different faiths, LGBTIA+, disabilities, socio-economic diversity, neuro-diversity and diverse family situations in a positive way.
At South Wilford we make sure that we respect people with particular characteristics and protect them from discrimination. We do this by trying to reflect these differences and characteristics in the resources we use, the stories we read and the examples we use in teaching and learning. We give children a voice and encourage them to be themselves. We celebrate differences and individuality through our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities. We aim to ensure children can see themselves represented in our school.
In the Autumn term, we raised money for the PTA by holding a whole school 'be unique' non-uniform day. Children were encouraged to come to school as themselves representing their unique identity. It was a fantastic day full of colour, expression, character and respect.
Multi-Faith Market Place
We had a wonderful time preparing artefacts and information to share at our multi-faith market place. We learned about other religions and faiths. Here are some images from the day.

Understanding disabilities and neuro-diversity
At South Wilford we respect everyone and work hard to ensure everyone feels welcome. We learn all about different disabilities and the challenges people can face in every day life. We also celebrate differences and promote this through our use of books and learning about famous people in history and today who have overcome challenges to succeed.
