We are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity in line with the Equality Act 2010. We aim to reduce disadvantage, discrimination and inequalities of opportunity and to promote diversity in terms of our students, our workforce and the communities in which we work.
We will assist our students in achieving their very best potential. Where students experience barriers to their success we will work with them to address these in a sensitive and sympathetic way.
We will teach our students the importance of equality and what forms discrimination can take and the impact of discrimination. We will also encourage our students to make their own commitment in promoting equality.

Racial Equity Statement
As a school, we are committed to the promotion of equality of opportunity for all, including people from different racial, ethnic, cultural and religious backgrounds. We consider that all manifestations of racism are wholly unacceptable and will act positively to eliminate racial discrimination where it occurs.
The school will take prompt, effective and systematic action to deal with all racist incidents and to identify and address racial, ethnic, cultural and religious inequalities.
The school is also committed to promoting good relationships (in line with our ALIVE values) between people of different racial, ethnic, cultural and religious groups. We will enable every pupil to:
- Participate in a curriculum that takes full account of the richness and variety of the world’s racial, ethnic, cultural and religious groups and develop understanding of some of the main causes of global inequality, disadvantage and poverty.
- Recognise and challenge racism, racial discrimination and stereotyping.
- Develop the knowledge and understanding, skills and attitudes necessary for life in Britain’s multi-ethnic society and as global citizens in an increasingly interdependent world.
