Diversity in the Curriculum


Blackpool is a predominantly white, British, working class town. Currently around 85% of our pupils are White British with only 9% of children for who English is not their first language. With this statistic in mind it is vital to consider whether our curriculum represents and and reflects the diversity of other areas of the North West and the rest of the country. 

At Westminster we know that diversity covers many different aspects other than race and culture and plan our curriculum to take other aspects into account: gender, disability, sexual orientation, class, migration and persecution. Our aim is to provide our children with the skills and  information to promote good citizenship in an increasingly complex and diverse society through embedding diversity in any relevant aspects of learning.

Below is an example of where diversity fits into our curriculum in 3 subject areas:
