This publication aims to support schools and centres in promoting diversity and equality through all aspects of planned learning.
Diversity is about recognising and valuing difference, where everyone is respected for who they are. Equality is about creating a fairer society, where everyone can take part and where everyone has the opportunity to be all they can be.
Curriculum for Excellence challenges schools and communities to develop children and young people as responsible citizens who:
• show respect for others
• understand different beliefs and cultures
• are developing informed, ethical views of complex issues.
All involved in successful learning need to understand themselves what it means to live in this diverse society, and to help children and young people understand what it means for them.
