Equality and Diversity

At the John Colet school we strive to ensure that every pupil feels represented and listened to. Equality and Diversity are embedded in our school curriculum, alongside a team of designated staff and students who champion inclusivity across the school, organising events taking place in and out of the classroom. The team for 2023-24 is shown below.
