Principle 2: The school recognises, respects and values difference and diversity.
Principle 3: The school will promote British Values.
Principle 4: The school fosters positive attitudes and relationships.
Principle 5: The school observes good equalities practice for all members of staff.
Principle 6: The school aims to reduce and remove inequalities and barriers which may already exist.
Principle 7: The school will consult and involve widely in relation to equality issues.
Principle 8: The school will address bullying and prejudice motivated incidents.
Principle 9: The school fosters a shared sense of cohesion and belonging and intends that its policies and procedures should benefit society as a whole.
