This week in school, we have been talking about Neurodiversity in our lessons and assemblies. Children have been learning about how everyone has a differently-wired brain and their own unique way of thinking and experiencing the world. Neurodiversity Celebration Week has also given us the opportunity to remind children that no matter what our differences and challenges, everyone also has their own strengths and talents and we looked at the stories of many famous people who are neurodiverse.
Our learning has also been linked in with our ‘No Outsiders’ ethos and we have talked about the importance of recognising and respecting that we do not all learn the same way and that people should never be made to feel like an outsider because of their differences.
