We are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers receiving services from the school, irrespective of race, gender, disability, faith, religion or socio-economic background. We work hard to foster a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to the school feel proud of their identity and are able to participate fully in school life.
We aim to foster and develop good relationships between all people in the local community. We want our school environment and ethos to be welcoming and inclusive to all people. We strive for a culture of openness and fairness where all people are treated with dignity and respect.
Our Equality Statement, including objectives, describes the range of things we do within lessons, assemblies and extra-curricular activities to promote tolerance, friendships and to develop an understanding of different cultures and religions. This policy meets the requirements of The Equality Act 2010, which introduced the public sector equality duty and protects people from discrimination.
The school has a designated member of staff for monitoring equality issues, and an equality link governor. They regularly liaise regarding any issues and make senior leaders and governors aware of these as appropriate.
Designated Member of Staff: Mrs Alison Story-Scrivens
Equality Link Governor: Mrs Sam Stanhope
