At Bar Hill School we value diversity while teaching the value of equality, starting with valuing the fact that, along with English, we have 27 different languages spoken by the children at school. The International Champions is a new group of young people developed in 2015/2016 by Miss Davies to support the diversity in our community. International Champions serve as:
- buddies to new students who share the same language, other than English, to help them learn about our school quickly and without anxiety.
- translators for children and sometimes adults.
- organizers and participants during international events such as our very successful International Week.
- people with open ears listening for tension in the community and breaches in our school values who tell teachers in order to restore our values across the school.
