The document below sets out how we achieve these aims and what our key Equalities Objectives are. We seek to be a culturally competent organisation and teach cultural competence to our children; meaning that we learn to live well in our diverse world. The school and Local Authority are committed to promoting anti-racist teaching, equal opportunities for boys and girls, as well as understanding of people who represent all protected characteristics under law.

Racist, sexist, anti-social or discriminatory behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated at our school.
