Student Equality and Diversity Committee 2021
In November, we launched a student Equality and Diversity Committee to promote and celebrate equality, diversity and inclusivity at Bishop’s under the guidance of Miss Maisey, who is the lead teacher for equality and diversity this year.
As part of our initial plans, KS4 and KS5 pupils were invited to volunteer to become members of the student committee to lead on this new initiative. Many of the pupils had taken a leading role in our celebrations for Black History Month 2020. In liaison with our Head Girls, who are working with the School Council, the committee has planned events for the year by taking into account wider pupil feedback and suggestions.
So far, the committee have organised successful assemblies and whole school activities for World Religion and Culture Week in January 2021 and LGBT+ History Month this February 2021. We would like to congratulate the committee members for all their hard work, dedication and leadership!
