A discussion about EQUALITY


In this week’s meeting we discussed the term ‘equality’ and what that meant. 

I was really impressed by the reflective thoughts of the school councillors.  We plan to use our understanding to develop a child friendly charter/equality policy so all children in our school understand how Lytham Hall Park Primary School values and shows Equality in our school. 


What is equality?

Hannah Y5 – ‘Being fair others’

Tom Y6 – ‘Treating others like you want to be treated’

Lillia Y5 – ‘When two or more things are the same’

Alfie  Y4– ‘Even when people are different, we treat them the same as us’


When we talk about equality in school what do you think of?

Archie Y5– ‘Well our head teacher and deputy talk about equality a lot especially in our assemblies…teamwork, tolerance, respect and kindness’

Shashank Y6 –  ‘We talk about compassion, self belief, hope and diversity in assemblies as our school values as well as in our lessons like PSHE and RE’


How is everyone treated as an equal at Hall Park?

Hannah Y5 – ‘Pupils are welcoming to new members of school so you don’t feel different when you arrive’

Lillia Y5 – ‘ Well we’re all taught the same things, everyone is involved, no one is left out because they can’t do it in the same way’

Archie Y5 – ‘We’re all taught at our own level, because we’re all good at different things’


What differences are there within our school community?

Rohan Y2 – ‘Some people have glasses’

Rohan Y2 – ‘Some people have different skin’

Elliot Y3 – ‘We’re all different colours really’

Finlay Y3 – ‘We have different religions’

Olivia Y3 – ‘We have different beliefs’

Leo Y4 – ‘We have different accents because we come from different places’

Evie Y6 – ‘We are different genders’

Tom Y6 – ‘We all have different opinions’

Isabelle Y5 – ‘We’re all different ages

Hannah Y5 – ‘We’ve all got different amounts of money and come from different backgrounds’


How do we celebrate them?

Archie Y5 – ‘We celebrate our achievements, work and behaviour in merit assemblies and with head teacher awards’

Lillia Y5 – ‘We learn about language and cultures when we do European Day of Languages’

Tom Y6 – ‘Sometimes we have special weeks like Eureka when children can celebrate their strengths’

All – ‘We all learn about different religions in our curriculum… Christianity, Sikhism, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism’

Sienna Y3 – ‘We have visitors who tell us about religions and how people live and we’ve done activities like dance’

Shashank Y6 – ‘We’ve had religious visitors before to tell us about their religion and bring in artefacts’



How could we celebrate them more?


Evie Y6 – ‘Children could lead assemblies’

Isabelle Y5 – ‘Children could runs different stalls in the hall and people could visit each one’

Tom Y6 – We could mix together with different classes more to learn more about each other

Tom Y6 – ‘We could have a pen pal or some sort of link to other people or another school’



Democracy in action


Our school council meeting today we started to discuss ideas about play times.

Some of our Y5 children have created a questionnaire and completed an audit of equipment.

We look forward to making some exciting changes so children continue to enjoy their play times.
