Earlier this year, Jeanne Bain from Just Lincolnshire came into school to talk to Taruca class about "equality" and what it means, in order that they could become equality ambassadors. She spoke to them about the 2010 Equality Act which ensures people with protected characteristics are treated fairly. These characteristics include having a disability and needing to use a wheelchair. They discussed what it means to be gay, bisexual and transgender and how it is wrong to bully people - calling someone fat, skinny or a nerd (for wearing glasses) - or judge someone by their accent or colour of their skin.
This week, we were delighted to welcome Jeannie back to Belmont as the class shared their learning with everyone in KS2 in their special Equality assembly. She was very impressed with the children's work and their understanding of what equality means for us in our school and local community. The children received lanyards and certificates. Our Equality ambassadors will now be out and about around school helping everyone to keep happy and safe.
