Our Staff lead by example and ensure that those they manage adhere to all school policies and our commitment with regard to equal opportunities and diversity. Our SMSC curriculum incorporates a range of different activities which teach the children about differences and the importance of equality. We embrace opportunities to teach about different religions and cultures and to celebrate diversity. We actively condemn all acts of violence and radicalisation.
Our school is a fully inclusive, happy community where our school vision, ethos and values permeate all that we do. Please take a look at our policies section to find further detail about our commitment to equal opportunities for all.
