Swanmore Diversity Week 26 - 29 June 2023

This is a time to recognise and celebrate the diversity of our pupils and staff at Swanmore and to promote the fundamental British values that underpin our society.

·          Mutual Respect

·          Tolerance of Different Cultures and Religions

·          Individual Liberty

·          Democracy

In preparation for 'Swanmore Diversity Week', the PSHE lesson on Tuesday 20 June 2023 will focus on diversity in the United Kingdom, with the topic of 'What makes Great Britain great?', during which pupils will explore how diversity in the arts, sports, science and public life has made the United Kingdom so successful in these fields. During Swanmore Diversity Week, pupils will have the opportunity to explore diversity in their subject lessons, for example reading and responding to an extract about a young refugee in English lessons or exploring artists from diverse backgrounds in Art lessons. Additionally, the topic that will be delivered in the PSHE lesson that week will be 'Intersectionality': the ways in which systems of inequality based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, class and other forms of discrimination "intersect" to create unique dynamics and effects. This is an important topic that provides pupils with the knowledge, skills and values that they need to support them being active and positive citizen. 

In tutor time pupils will be designing and writing 'Swanmore Diversity Week' pledges that will form part of a large whole college display. We will then round off the week with a celebration of diversity with tutor reps representing their tutor groups, which will be filmed and available to watch on our website and social media. Finally, on Thursday 29 June 2023, pupils will be allowed to wear a 'Swanmore Diversity Week' variation of their uniform: Swanmore PE leggings or jogging bottoms with a brightly coloured T-shirt. Cropped tops will not be allowed, so we please ask that you support us with this and ensure that your child is wearing an appropriate T-shirt. Swanmore will be a beacon of colour and diversity!
