Celebrating Diversity at Scunthorpe Church Of England Primary

In our school, we celebrate the fact that many of our children speak more than one language and we recognise that our school community is enriched by this. We value the different languages and cultures that make up our school.

In our school the teaching and learning, achievements, attitudes and well-being of all children are important. We encourage all children to achieve the highest possible standards. We do this through taking account of each child’s life experiences and needs.


This school has 13 out of 17 possible ethnic groups.

Those with 5% or more are: –

31%: White - any other White background –

27%: White - British –

18%: Asian or Asian British - Bangladeshi –

11%: Asian or Asian British - any other Asian background
