Diversity and Equality
We value the need for diversity and understand the importance of having staff that are representative of the children we teach
Staff at Harris come from all backgrounds and walks of life, coming together to inspire young minds. We promote an inclusive culture that embraces the valuable and enriching contribution that all our staff members make. It is imperative that we continue to be proactive in uplifting and supporting all voices at Harris.
Working towards building a Federation that reflects the world we live in
Established in 2016, Harris’ Diverse Leaders Programme is a testament to our dedication to ensuring best practice in equality, diversity and inclusion across the Federation.
The programme aims to help BAME colleagues have the confidence to apply for leadership roles and headship positions. In running the Diverse Leaders Programme and others like it, we hope to continue an ever-changing discussion on the importance of recognising BAME school leadership.
"We’ve been running the Diverse Leaders Programme since 2016 to tackle this issue. It is open to teachers from around London and aims to equip BAME colleagues with the confidence to take their next steps in their careers – whether that’s applying for senior leadership or headship positions." Natasha Evans, Head of Harris City Academy Crystal Palace Teaching School.
