We are committed to the promotion of equality and diversity. In so doing, we realise the valuable contribution which all members of the community can make to the school. Our policies and practices will be reviewed to take into account the different needs and contributions of pupils, staff, parents and governors.
Vital to our work on equality and diversity is to ensure that pupils and staff can develop in an environment which is supportive of academic and emotional needs.
The legislation which applies to schools with regard to equality is complex and requires us to have in place various policies and practices. We have chosen to combine these requirements into a single resource and strategy for equality and diversity (see link below)
Information about our school (from Ofsted)
Almost all of the pupils are from White British backgrounds and few speaking English as an additional language. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is below average and the percentage of pupils supported at school action plus or with a statement of special education needs is also below average. A below average proportion of pupils are known to be eligible for free school meals.
