At Burlish Park:
The school has a PSHE curriculum which develops the knowledge and understanding of cultural issues in our school, community and the wider world.
The teaching and learning of cultural differences is enhanced throughout the year by pupils experiencing rich and varied educational visits to places outside of their local community. These include residential visits to London, farm visits, Birmingham Museum and places of worship.
Throughout the wider curriculum we strive to allow children to develop a wider cultural understanding. From Banghra dancing in PE, discussing a large range of faiths and beliefs in RE, appreciating music from different countries in music lessons to studying and comparing the differences of where we live to other parts of the world in Geography. This is just a small cross section of how we allow our children to understand, accept, respect and celebrate diversity and cultural differences.
We take part in many different sporting activities and clubs. The pupils thoroughly enjoy playing and competing in the local Kho Kho (a game of Indian origin) tournament. We love winning but also know that taking part is important along with accepting the views and decisions of others respectfully in game situations.
