Neurodiversity Celebration Week
Just before the Easter break, it was Neurodiversity Celebration Week, which aims to bring about worldwide neurodiversity acceptance, equality and inclusion in schools and workplaces.
We have been talking about our own unique strengths and challenges, and the importance of respecting differences. During an assembly we looked at a brain in action to see how new connections are made as we learn and experience different things. We talked about what neurodiversity means for some people in terms of the skills and abilities they have as well as the challenges they might meet.
Pupils were fascinated to learn more about this area and to understand how different ways of thinking and learning are not better or worse than other ways, they are just different. They have enjoyed discussing how we must all make sure that everybody in our community is treated with respect and kindness.
