Equality Objectives

Our approach to equality is based on the following. Constituent Schools monitor localised plans based on the following principles and the unique requirements of the School:

Seven Key Principles

  1. All learners are of equal value. Whether or not they are disabled, whatever their ethnicity, culture, national origin or national status, whatever their gender and gender identity, whatever their religious or non-religious affiliation or faith background and whatever their sexual orientation.
  2. We recognize, respect and value difference and understand that diversity is a strength. We take account of differences and strive to remove barriers and disadvantages which people may face, in relation to disability, ethnicity, gender, religion, belief or faith and sexual orientation. We believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here.
  3. We foster positive attitudes and relationships. We actively promote positive attitudes and mutual respect between groups and communities which are different from each other.
  4. We foster a shared sense of cohesion and belonging. We want all members of our schools’ communities to feel a sense of belonging within their school and wider community and to feel that they are respected and able to participate fully in school life.
  5. We observe good equalities practice for our staff. We ensure that policies and procedures benefit all employees and potential employees in all aspects of their work, including in recruitment and promotion, and in continuing professional development.
  6. We have the highest expectations of all our learners. We expect that all learners can make good progress and achieve to their highest potential
  7. We work to raise standards for all learners, but especially for the most vulnerable. We believe that improving the quality of education for the most vulnerable groups of learners raises standards across the whole Trust.
