Agents for Change

We are very proud of our Year 9 Agents for Change who worked with Equaliteach for a day’s workshop on relationships, identity, bullying and tackling prejudice. The Year 9 students volunteered to take part, representing their form groups and discussing a range of issues and ideas including racism, gender, unconscious bias and how we can support each other as a school community. Ms Giles, their head of year, supervised the students all day and was proud of their maturity and focus.

Equaliteach have worked with the school before, including with our Year 11s last year. They provide equality and diversity training for schools and businesses with a non-judgemental and engaging approach. The workshop examined the portrayal of different groups in the media, how we can fact check stories and how we construct our own identities. Their central aim is to stop identity-based bullying and create a supportive culture. 

These agents for change, will now be the KS3 ambassadors for the school and look for strategies in how they can disseminate their ideas further to their peers. They will work in conjunction with the sixth form diversity society and help lead the school forward to ensure all of our school community experience kindness and dignity.
