  •          Fostering good relationships.
  •          Advancing equality of opportunity.

We will not discriminate against, harass or victimise any staff member, pupil, prospective pupil, or other member of the school community because of their:

  •          Age.
  •          Race.
  •          Disability.

We aim to promote pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development, with special emphasis on promoting equality and diversity, and eradicating prejudicial incidents for pupils and staff. Our school is committed to not only eliminating discrimination, but also increasing understanding and appreciation for diversity.

Aims to eradicate discrimination

We believe that a greater level of success from pupils and staff can be achieved by realising the uniqueness of individuals. Creating an inclusive environment where individuals feel confident and at ease is a commitment of the school. This environment will be achieved by:

  •          Being respectful.
  •          Always treating all members of the school community fairly.
  •          Developing an understanding of diversity and inclusion and the benefits it can have.
  •          Adopting an inclusive attitude and ensuring that the whole school community understands what inclusive behaviour looks like in the school and how this aligns with the school’s values.
  •          Adopting an inclusive curriculum that is accessible to all.
  •          Encouraging compassion and open-mindedness.
  •          Challenging bias and calling it out in order to move the conversation forward.

We are committed to having a balanced, diverse and fair curriculum. We believe that our pupils should be exposed to ideas and concepts that may challenge their understanding, to help ensure that pupils learn to become more accepting and inclusive of others. Challenging and controversial concepts will be delivered in a way that prevents discrimination and promotes inclusive attitudes.

Dealing with prejudice and celebrating diversity

We do not tolerate any form of prejudice-related incident. Whether direct or indirect, we treat discrimination against all members of our school with the utmost severity. When an incident is reported, our school is devoted to ensuring appropriate action is taken and a resolution is put into place which is both fair and firm.

Our pupils are taught to be:

  •          Understanding of others.
  •          Celebratory of diversity.
  •          Eager to reach their full potential.
  •          Inclusive.
  •          Aware of what constitutes discriminatory behaviour.

The school’s employees will not:

  •          Promote diversity and equality.
  •          Encourage and adopt an inclusive attitude.
  •          Lead by example.
  •          Seek training if they need to improve their knowledge in a particular area.

Throughout the year, the school provides a variety of opportunities to celebrate diversity, including:

  •          Planning activities for key diversity awareness days.
  •          Inviting guest speakers to talk to pupils about diversity.
  •          Incorporating lessons about diversity into the curriculum.

Equality and dignity in the workplace

We do not discriminate against staff with regard to their:

  •          Marital or civil partner status.

Equality of opportunity and non-discrimination extends to the treatment of all members of the school community. All staff members are obliged to act in accordance will the school’s various policies relating to equality.

We will guarantee that no redundancy is the result of direct or indirect prejudice. All disciplinary procedures are non-prejudicial, whether they result in warnings, dismissal, or any other disciplinary action.

Diversity and representation

We aim to ensure that all groups are represented throughout the school. We strive to ensure that all groups are represented in the books and resources that we use. We understand that representation in the classroom matters.


We are an inclusive school for all members of our school community. We know that we have a diverse range of pupils, parents, carers, staff and governors within our school community. We are committed to ensuring the best quality of education and experience for all our pupils under our care.

Every one of our pupils is given the chance to engage in a broad and balanced school curriculum. Work is tailored appropriately to meet pupils’ needs and pupils are challenged to achieve their best in every lesson. All pupils have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of extra -curricular activities and opportunities.

The school ensures it has due regard to equality considerations whenever significant decisions are made.

The school considers the impact of significant decisions on particular groups. For example, when a school trip or activity is being planned, the school considers whether the trips:

  •          Occur during any religious holidays.
  •          Is accessible to pupils with disabilities.
  •          Has equivalent facilities for boys and girls

Closing statement

Prejudice is not tolerated and we are continuously working towards a more accepting and respectful environment for our school community.
