School Diversity Week - 21st to 25th June 2021

Each year thousands of schools take part in School Diversity Week. A national charity 'Just like Us' created the week to celebrate LGBTQ+ families in schools. We love taking part in this week as it is a fantastic way to ensure that our school is a safe, happy and welcoming place for everyone, no matter who they are. At Balshaw's, we like to celebrate all types of diversity, so that is exactly what we did!
