Belonging Week


Still image for this video

Building a greater sense of belonging is a key part of our equality and diversity work at Park View.
'Belonging' is that sense of being somewhere, where you can be confident that you will fit in and be safe in your identity: a feeling of being at home in a place.
During this week, we really explored what ‘Belonging’ means. We learnt about the diversity of our school community and had opportunities to share and talk about our own identities. We celebrated the different cultures in our community and championed the importance of learning British Sign Language at Park View. 

We started 'Belonging Week' with an assembly about identity. These presentations were shared...

Our Self Portraits

Every child, from Nursery to Year 6, created their own self portrait in the style of one of the artists. To celebrate us all belonging to Park View Primary we displayed every portrait in the KS1 and KS2 halls. Parents were invited into school to help their children find their portrait and enjoy the wonderful artwork.


We dressed to show our identity and belonging.

To enhance 'Belonging Week', children came to school wearing clothes to represent their sense of belonging. The clothes could represent their culture and could be part of their national dress. The children could also wear uniform or kit to represent clubs they belong to such as Brownies and Cubs, or a sports club. Some children were just happy wearing their school uniform to show their sense of belonging to Park View Primary School.

British Sign Language (BSL)

 As a school with a Resourced Provision for Deaf Children, we have several pupils who use BSL as a primary form of communication and BSL is a regular feature of school life. Daily, we experience first hand the value BSL offers, not only to the children from the resource provision but the majority of our students.
