Teaching and Learning within the SLES Framework

How the principles of the SLES are incorporated into school life...



The work of SLES in school runs through daily life at James Peacock through ensuring the principles of the standard are:


  • Embedded in all Teaching & Learning
  • Considered and incorporated in displays, signs and notice boards (e.g. multiple languages)


Examples of work done with the children in school in working towards the standard:


  • Family Boxes
  • Culture Wheels
  • Sharing the Stephen Lawrence story
  • Assemblies – linking messages to the SLES principles of respect, diversity, etc
  • Received visitors

* Euline – a lady who came in to talk about her childhood in Jamaica

* Tales from the Heartwood – multicultural storyteller/puppeteer

* Boccia player – Boccia is a Paralympic sport for athletes with disabilities that have a major impacton motor skills

  • Links with other schools – Pupil exchange planned with William Lilley Infant & Nursey School
  • Caribbean Week
  • School Council – organised and judged logo/show of friendship badge competition, led assemblies involving the Stephen Lawrence story
  • Persona dolls used to support children’s feelings and other cultures (e.g. in the nurture room)
  • Activities to mark special days and celebrations (e.g. Chinese New Year, Dad’s day, etc)
