Equalities Statement

 

 

We believe all members of our school community should have the opportunity to fulfil their potential, whatever their background, identity or circumstance. We are committed to creating a community that recognises and celebrates difference within a culture of respect and co-operation.

The school is opposed to all forms of homophobia, racism and xenophobia, including those forms that are directed towards religious groups and communities, for example Islamophobia, and against Travellers, refugees and asylum-seekers. 

We appreciate that a culture which promotes equality will create a positive environment and shared sense of belonging for all who work, learn and use the services of our school. Our commitment to equality and diversity is a fundamental part of our drive towards excellence.

Our journey towards becoming a Rights Respecting School is a very important part of our school life. We have achieved our Record of Commitment and encourage pupils to employ Rights Respecting vocabulary in all their dealings with each other.
