Workshops in Bollywood dancing, henna hand designs and African head wraps were among the many things on offer at the school’s “diversity day” on July 11.

The event culminated a term of work on the topic, which has seen children learn about a wide range of its pupils’ backgrounds.

Deputy head Marianne Enchill-Balogun said it had been “lovely” having pupils, parents and staff working together as a community.

“Throughout the topic, a lot of people have learnt lots about each other and some people have learnt a lot about themselves I think,” she added.
