Our school is committed to equality. Therefore:

  • We try to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect.
  • We try to make sure our school is a safe, secure and stimulating place for everyone.
  • We recognise that people have different needs, and we understand that treating people equally does not always involve treating them all exactly the same.
  • We recognise that for some pupils extra support is needed to help them to achieve and be successful.
  • We try to make sure that people from different groups are consulted and involved in our decisions, for example through talking with pupils and parents/carers, and through our School Council.
  • We aim to make sure that no-one experiences less favourable treatment or discrimination because of: their age; any disability they may have; their ethnicity, colour or national origin; their sex; their gender identity or reassignment; their marital or civil partnership status; being pregnant or having recently had a baby; their religion or beliefs; their sexual identity and orientation.

Under the Equality Act 2010 we welcome our general duty to:

  • eliminate discrimination,
  • to advance equality of opportunity
  • to foster good relations.
