Everyone is welcome at The Grove Infant and Nursery School: everyone is different, and everyone is welcome.
We are proud of our commitment to educating pupils about the diverse world we live in. We are developing a Diversity Programme to enable children to understand the benefits of a diverse society and prepares them for life in modern Britain.
The aim is to build acceptance of difference and celebration of every individual.
Through a progressive range of picture books, children are all taught about diversity: this includes all elements of The Equality Act including race, religion, gender, age, disability and sexual orientation.
The following books are examples of those used throughout the school:
