Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Ensuring every person experiences a full sense of belonging.

Our commitment to a diverse and inclusive community is rooted in our Core Values.

At Heronfield Academy, we cherish our collected community, where each person’s story is honored and where we work together to ensure that all members experience a full sense of belonging. We appreciate every individual’s unique intersectional identities which include, but are not limited to, their race, gender, age, ability/disability, ethnicity, culture, religion, geographic background, family structure, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and socioeconomic status. As in all aspects of the Heronfield mission, our commitment to a diverse and inclusive community is rooted in our Core Values.

Heronfield’s core values

Building a caring & compassionate community.

We believe that by living these values, we will build a caring and compassionate community for
our students, our families and our faculty and staff as we all seek to contribute to a more just and equitable world.


We are committed to openly addressing the challenges of this ongoing work in order to create and maintain a physically and emotionally safe environment for everyone at Heronfield.


We actively promote a culture of social awareness and understanding where different experiences, thoughts and opinions are respectfully expressed and thoughtfully heard.


Both as individuals and as a community of learners, we continually examine and question our methods and narratives. We seek to recognize and challenge injustice wherever we may see it, and we will revise our programs and policies to reflect our shared growth.


We celebrate and affirm the lived experience of our community members, believing that diversity enriches our exchange of ideas and broadens our minds to new perspectives.


We meet each person with compassion and empathy. As an intentional part of our core curriculum, we aim to foster a sense of social responsibility in our students.

Heronfield’s Annual Community Day

Community Day at Heronfield Academy is an all school event in which we come together and have conversations that provide opportunities to hear and tell individual stories, to discover who we are, to learn about others in our community and the world around us, and to explore how we impact our community. Our goal? To ensure and strengthen a full sense of belonging for every member of our school.
