Celebrating Diversity, Equity And Inclusion

Published by Bancroft's School on Thursday 7th of December 2023

Here at Bancroft's diversity is not just a word, it's a vibrant reality that shapes our community. We are committed to creating an environment where every individual feels valued, heard, and a true sense of belonging. Read more to see the latest initiatives that underscore our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion:

Phonetic Spelling for Personal Recognition

In our pursuit of inclusivity, we’ve implemented the phonetic spelling of names on our register. This small yet significant change ensures that every student’s name is pronounced correctly. By acknowledging and respecting the diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds of our students, we create a foundation for mutual understanding.

Student DEI Group: Empowering Voices

At Bancroft’s, we recognise the power of student-led initiatives. Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) group is a testament to this belief. Comprising students from diverse backgrounds, this group actively engages in promoting conversations around diversity and inclusion. By giving students a platform to express their unique perspectives, we foster a community where every voice matters.

Celebrating Identity Through Events

Our commitment to diversity extends beyond the classroom. The Diversity School Calendar is a testament to the rich tapestry of identities within Bancroft’s. Through assemblies and special events such as Culture and Identity Day, we celebrate the unique backgrounds and identities of our students. These occasions not only educate but also foster a sense of pride in one’s identity.

Inclusion Labs: Pioneering Change

Bancroft’s is proud to announce its future collaboration with Inclusion Labs, a partnership aimed at further enhancing our commitment to inclusivity. As part of this initiative, we will be launching an inclusion audit to identify areas where we can strengthen the sense of belonging for every member of our community. This proactive approach reflects our dedication to continuous improvement.
