Winton is part of Futurezone, which is an education improvement partnership. Futurezone is a collabration of schools aiming for excellent outcomes for children through:

  • Excellence in teaching and learning
  • Developing inspiring leaders
  • Collaboration between children
  • Innovative business management achieving best value

Futurezone schools are committed to ensuring equality and diversity of opportunity for all of our pupils, staff and parents and carers irrespective of race, gender, disability, belief, sexual orientation, age or socio-economic background. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to our schools feel proud of their identity and ability to participate fully in school life. Futurezone believes that diversity is a strength which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit us.

In 2020/21 Futurezone schools are focusing on diversity through the “Conolly Project”; named after the UK’s first female black Headteacher.

The project has four objectives:

  1. To share, learn from and celebrate models of good practice within Futurezone and nationwide and create a supportive, open yet challenging forum for discussion on the issues and barriers facing BAME in our schools.
  2. To raise awareness of privilege and address the social, economic and cultural differences that are barriers to BAME in the education setting and beyond.
  3. To ensure our schools’ curriculum reflects the children being taught, develops positive identities of self for all children and staff and pupils are provided with critical lens to critically review and evaluate learning areas and materials.
  4. To provide training to support Futurezone stakeholders in attaining substantive diversity in education and promote inclusive representation among school leaders, decision makers and other key stakeholders (e.g. LBI) including review equality policies.

We are looking forward to working with our community on the Conolly Project, please look out for regular updates about how you can be involved.  

Let's make something beautiful together...
