Inclusion and Equality

At John Clifford, we ensure that equality runs through the heart of everything we do. We are extremely fortunate to work within such a diverse community of adults and children. We are developing our curriculum to ensure that all of the children have the greatest opportunities possible to learn about the wider world around them.
We have a single equality policy (see below) which underpins our work with all members of the school community. This policy contains a breakdown of our school's protected characteristics and the key objectives that  we have prioritised for the next three years (see page 14-16).
Any incidences of prejudice, hate or bullying is recorded in school and reported to governors and the local authority. It is also reported on in the termly Headteacher report.

Show Racism the Red Card

John Clifford School is a passionate supporter of the charity 'Show Racism the Red Card'. This is a charity based in England that is dedicated to educating all about anti-racism, prejudice and racial bullying. They are supported by many across the country and have a wide range of footballers who also support the charity. 

The charity provides many opportunities for children to be active in their promotion of anti-racist ideas and here at John Clifford we take part in them throughout the year. During Black History Month, we take part in Wear Red Day, raising money for the charity so that they can continue to educate children and young people about anti-racism and tackle issues in soem hard to reach areas. In 2022, we raised a fantastic £249.71 and in 2023 we raised £164.95.

We also take part in their annual Art Competition. In 2023, one of our Year 5 pupils was lucky enough to come third place in her category and to our suprise recieve an honorary award at Liverpool Anfield Football Stadium. It was a fantastic display of how powerful the voices of young people can be. 

Please see below our winning entries and our runners-up for 2023.

Let's see how successful we are in 2024!

'Dreams of Freedom'

During our transition days in July, each class took some time to reflect upon the word 'freedom'. Using the text 'Dreams of Freedom in Pictures and Words', the children discussed what the word freedom meant to them, reviewed new vocabulary and had the opportunity to challenge things that they considered to oppose freedom. 

Each class produced their own 'Freedom to...' display which you can see as you walk around our school. Some examples of the beautiful artwork can be seen below:

'Equality through Art'

In Year 5, the children used the theme of 'equality and inequality' to create some inspiring artwork.
