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.
We also have a parents equality group who meet termly to share ideas on how to improve accessibility and inclusion in school. This is a new and informal group and we are always looking for new members, particularly those who identify as being from groups with protected characteristics. If you would like to be part of this group, please email email@example.com for more details.
