We are also fully committed to meeting our responsibilities in regards toThe Prevent Strategy, Promoting British Values, Child Sex Exploitation, Young Carers, and any other Government backed equality initiatives. Our aim is to provide a framework that supports our commitment to valuing diversity, tackling discrimination, promoting equality and fostering good relationships between different groups of people.

As such, we recognise that the whole school community working together, encouraging strong, positive relationships between pupils, staff, parents, governors and other school stakeholders helps to provide the best education and life experiences for all our pupils. In line with our responsibilities under the Public Sector Equality Duty arising from the Equality Act 2010, we shall be shortly publishing on line and in paper format our Equality Objectives for the next four years; which we intend to evaluate annually.
