EQUALITY STATEMENT

Our equality objectives are:

2.    To reduce prejudice and increase understanding of equality through direct teaching across the curriculum.

3.    To move beyond deterministic notions of fixed ability and to model learning and teaching behaviours that avoid labelling.

5.    To eradicate prejudice related bullying in relation to the protected characteristics listed in the Equality Act 2010.
