EQUALITY, DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

At Coppice Farm Primary, we are committed to ensuring that we promote equality for all members of our school community - our pupils, staff, parents and visitors.
We aim to do this through the use of our resources, our school policies and how we deliver our curriculum. We also aim to promote a global understanding of equality issues through our practice and curriculum. We fully accept our responsibility to educate our children about equality information and assertively address any behaviour that affects the equality of others.
This includes equality issues relating to:
ethnicity and race
any prejudice towards transgender people
Our school is committed to promoting the welfare and equality of all our staff, pupils and other members of the school community - to achieve this, we will:

"Why Should Black History Be Important To Everyone?"
Year have had an amazing learning journey with their local history study focusing on significant people that have had an impact the community here in Nottingham.
Eric Irons was the main activist focused on. Irons fought for employment rights in Nottingham, changing the way in which big Nottingham based companies like Nottingham City Transport employed people.
