A Note for Parents, Guardians and Community Members
Welcome to the Yellow Flag Programme!
We are delighted to let you know that your school has been accepted into the Yellow Flag Programme. This programme will enable the students, staff and the wider school community…
- to learn more about their own and others’ culture
- to value and celebrate the cultural diversity that is in the school
- to learn more about treating people fairly
If the school can complete 8 steps, you will receive your Yellow Flag. The Yellow Flag will show everyone that you are a school that values cultural diversity. Involving parents, families and communities is one of the steps – your help is needed to earn a yellow flag.
What will be happening?
Students and teachers will be asked to learn more about each other’s culture. You will have an important role to play, as you can talk to your child about their culture, heritage and history. We want every child to be proud of themselves, their community and culture. You will be finding out what students and parents think about your school, and how their culture is valued – share your views with the school or fill out the school
survey later this year. Your school will be celebrating the cultural diversity in the school and having events for parents and families, please come along and get involved.
The school will be inviting people into class to talk to us about their culture – maybe you or somebody you know would like to give a talk?
A Diversity Committee of students, teachers, parents and community leaders will be set up to help guide our school towards our Yellow Flag. Parents from diverse backgrounds are encouraged to get involved.
