At Cradle Hill, the protected characteristics are on display in all classrooms throughout the school and many common areas. We ensure that our children are given opportunities to develop age-appropriate knowledge of the protected characteristics and a deeper understanding through a well-planned and delivered curriculum. They are mainly showcased through our PSHE/RSHE learning, but also appear in Geography, History, Science, Religious Education and Reading.
We believe that children should be able to recognise themselves and their circumstances so they can see their lived experiences validated and valued.
