Academy policy statement on equality and community cohesion
Our Academy is committed to equality both as an employer and a service provider.
- We try to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect.
- We want to make sure that our Academy is a safe, secure and stimulating place for everyone.
- We recognise that people have different needs, and we understand that treating people equally does not always involve treating them all exactly the same.
- We recognise that for some pupils extra support is needed to help them to achieve and be successful.
- We try to make sure that people from different groups are consulted and involved in our decisions, for example through talking to pupils and parents/carers, and through our Academy Council.
- We aim to make sure that no-one experiences less favourable treatment or discrimination because of their age; any disability they may have; their ethnicity, colour or national origin; their gender; their gender identity or reassignment; their marital or civil partnership status; being pregnant or having recently had a baby; their religion or beliefs; their sexual identity and orientation.
- We welcome our duty under the Education and Inspections Act 2006 to promote community cohesion.
