Our schools value the individuality of all of our children. We are committed to giving all our children every opportunity to achieve the highest of standards. We do this by taking account of pupils' varied experiences and needs. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, and have high expectations of all children. The achievements, attitudes and well-being of all our children matter.
Aims and Objectives
We aim to act positively and have due regard to the need to challenge and eliminate unlawful discrimination – within both our school and our community.
We aim not to discriminate against anyone, be they staff, pupil or parent, on the grounds of gender, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion/belief, age, gender reassignment, pregnancy/maternity and marriage/civil partnership, level of educational need or background.
We aim to promote the principle of fairness and justice for all through the education that we provide in our school. We recognise that doing this may entail treating some pupils differently.
We seek to ensure that all pupils have equal access to the full range of educational opportunities provided by the school.
We constantly strive to remove any forms of indirect discrimination that may form barriers to learning for some groups of pupils.
We aim to ensure that all recruitment, employment, promotion and training processes are fair to all, and provide opportunities for everyone.
We aim to challenge personal prejudice and stereotypical views whenever they occur.
We value each pupil's worth, celebrating the individuality and cultural diversity of our school community, and showing respect for all minority groups.
We are aware that prejudice and stereotyping are often caused by poor self-image and also aware of the relationship between that and ignorance. Through positive educational experiences, and support for each individual's legitimate point of view, we aim to promote positive social attitudes and respect for all.
