Equality and Diversity

Mr Barber – Equality and Diversity Coordinator and LGBTQ+ Champion


Hello, I’m Mr Barber and I’m a former student of The Polesworth School as well as being a teacher.   I teach Psychology, and am also the Post-16 Academic Mentor, helping students in preparation with their future plans. Along with Mrs Starr, I run the Equality Forum here at school that meets once a fortnight. I am a passionate activist for equality and diversity and firmly believe in the power of education being the route towards a much more positive and happy ethos and culture. Outside of school I am interested in all things psychological and philosophical, and I continue to advocate and support equality through various other organisations such as Amnesty International, Stonewall and the AKT.
