We are committed to providing the best possible education for all children. We believe every child has their special gifts given to them by God and has something of value to offer. Every member of our school community will benefit by working in an environment where we strive to accept, respect and forgive (Mission statement).
All children have the opportunity to take part in a full range of activities provided by the school to develop them as confident, capable, happy learners. We provide a broad curriculum that caters for the needs of the individual child and we challenge discrimination on the grounds of age, ability, race, ethnic background, gender, sexuality, income or disability. As a Catholic school we strongly believe that there should be no discrimination on grounds of belief or creed and we teach our children to respect all religions.
It is important that everyone involved with the school respects and values each other. We respect, acknowledge and value the heritage language of every child. We support pupils’ bilingualism within the school community and aim to respond to each child’s experience of language so pupils can develop their ability to communicate fluently and confidently.
We actively challenge racist, homophobic or sexist language used by children or other adults. Incidents are monitored and reported to the Governing Body.
Our school aims to meet its obligations under the public sector equality duty by having due regard to the need to:
Eliminate discrimination and other conduct that is prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it
Foster good relations across all characteristics – between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it
