Meet the HAO Equalities Team
The HAO Equalities Team (pictured below) is made up of staff from a range of departments and students from a range of year groups. The Equalities Team is passionate about working together to ensure that there is absolute equality for all.
To date, the team has reviewed the whole-school curriculum to identify and celebrate areas of equality and diversity across subjects. With the help of Student Voice we have updated our curriculum and are now focusing on co-planning the PHSE, assemblies and tutor programme.
Examples of how we are promoting equality and diversity within our curriculum include assemblies and lessons across all subjects on equality-related topics such as Black History Month, LGBT+ month, International Women’s Day and GRT month.
“People don’t always think their voice matters but as part of Student Voice I will always make sure every voice matters,” says Shemaiah.
Thomas said: “I joined Student Voice as I would like to be part of the team that changes the academy as a whole and I have strong opinions about specific subjects that I believe could help the school."
