Equality

Our approach to equality is based on the following key principles: 

  1. All learners are of equal value
    This includes those that are disabled, whatever their ethnicity, culture, national origin or national status, whatever their sex and gender identity, whatever their religious or non-religious affiliation or faith background and whatever their sexual orientation.
  2. Recognising, respecting and valuing difference and understanding diversity
    We take account of differences and strive to remove barriers and disadvantages which people may face, in relation to disability, ethnicity, sex, religion, belief or faith and sexual orientation. We believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here. 
  3. Fostering positive attitudes and relationships
    We actively promote positive attitudes and mutual respect between groups and communities different from each other.
  4. Fostering a shared sense of cohesion and belonging
    We want all members of our school community to feel a sense of belonging within the school and wider community and to feel that they are respected and able to participate fully in school life.
  5. Observing good equalities practice for our staff
    We ensure that policies and procedures benefit all employees and potential employees in all aspects of their work, including in recruitment and promotion, and in continuing professional development. 
  6. Having the highest expectations of all our children
    We expect that all pupils can make good progress and achieve to their highest potential
  7. Working to raise standards for all pupils, but especially for the most vulnerable
    We believe that improving the quality of education for the most vulnerable groups of pupils raises standards across the whole school.
