Walthamstow Academy wins the Accord Inclusivity Award
A item in a national newspaper today, Tuesday 10 March, reports that Walthamstow Academy has become the first school with a Christian Ethos to win the Accord Inclusivity Award. The Guardian includes comments from our Principal as well as some students.
The Accord Coalition's judging panel chairman stated that Walthamstow Academy is "a template" for others to follow in terms of inclusivity of all pupils regardless of their faith. “Walthamstow shows how state-funded faith schools and schools with a religious ethos can both be true to themselves and serve the wider community that funds them,” he says.
