We adhere to the following principles for ensuring equal opportunities for all:

  • We do not discriminate against anyone, be they staff or pupil or parent, on the grounds of gender, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion and belief, cultural background, linguistic background, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, SEN and disability
  • We promote the principle of fairness and justice for all through the education that we provide in our School. We recognise that doing this may entail treating some pupils differently
  • We seek to ensure that all pupils have equal access to the full range of educational opportunities provided by the School
  • We strive to remove any forms of discrimination that may form barriers to learning for some groups
  • We ensure that all recruitment, employment, promotion and training systems are fair to all, and provide opportunities for everyone
  • We challenge personal prejudice and stereotypical views whenever they occur
  • We value each pupil's worth, we celebrate the individuality and cultural diversity of the community centred on our School, and we show respect for all groups

We are aware that prejudice and stereotyping can be caused by poor self-image and by ignorance. Through positive educational experiences, and support for each individual's legitimate point of view, we aim to promote positive social attitudes, and respect for all.
