We welcome the equality duties on schools and regard these as essential for achieving the five outcomes of the Every Child Matters framework which is embedded within our Learning Policy which is based upon our CORE VALUES of Happiness, Respect and Creativity.
We believe that all pupils and members of staff should have the opportunity to fulfil their potential whatever their background, identity and circumstance. We are committed to creating a community that recognises and celebrates difference within a culture of respect and cooperation. We appreciate that a culture which promotes equality will create a positive environment and a shared sense of belonging for all who work, learn and use the services of our school.
Develop our school at the heart of the community.
Raise awareness that all of us hold some prejudice based on previous experiences and to challenge these both with others and personally.
Develop our children’s awareness of their place in the global community.
Continually monitor the school’s rewards systems.
Develop understanding by children and staff of the capabilities of disabled people.
