The curriculum for all maintained schools should promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils at the school and of society, and prepare pupils at the school for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life. Education Act 2002

Schools have a duty to eliminate unlawful racial discrimination and to promote equality of opportunity and good relations between people of different groups. Race Relations Amendment Act 2000












At Belgrave Primary School, we recognise the importance of developing community cohesion.  Through our ethos and curriculum, we promote discussion of a common sense of identity and support diversity, showing pupils how different communities can be united by shared values and common experiences. 


What is community cohesion?

By community cohesion, we mean working towards a society in which there is a sense of belonging by all communities; a society in which the diversity of people’s backgrounds and circumstances is appreciated and valued; a society in which similar life opportunities are available to all, and a society in which strong and positive relationships exist and continue to be developed in the workplace, in schools and in the wider community.

By creating opportunities for pupils’ achievement and enabling every child to achieve their potential, we can make a significant contribution to long term community cohesion.
