Equal Oppotunities


We aim, as an academy, to produce a safe and secure environment where all can learn without anxiety and where there is mutual respect for other people and the environment. We are committed to promoting respect and equality across all protected characteristics, including sexual orientation and gender identity, and preparing pupils for life in diverse 21st Century Britain. We tackle discrimination quickly and firmly and aim to make equality of opportunity a reality for our children. We recognise and pay attention to the different groups of learners within our academy:

  • Males and females
  • Learners with different sexual orientations and gender identities (including LGBT);
  • Minority ethnic and faith groups
  • Learners with English as an additional language
  • Learners with special educational needs
  • Learners with a disability
  • Gifted and Talented learners
  • Learners who are at risk of disaffection or exclusion.



  • To ensure that all learners have equal access to a rich, broad, balanced and relevant curriculum.


  • To advance equality of opportunity by ensuring that teaching, learning and the curriculum promote equality, celebrate diversity and promote community cohesion by fostering good relations.


  • To eliminate any discrimination, harassment and victimisation. To ensure that no-one is unfairly or illegally disadvantaged as a consequence of their age, disability, gender, gender-identity, sexual orientation, colour, race, ethnic or national origin, disability or religious beliefs.


  • To recognize and celebrate diversity within our community whilst promoting community cohesion.


  • To ensure that this policy is applied to all we do.


  • To ensure that pupils and parents are fully involved in the provision made by the school.


  • To ensure that within the school budget, adequate funding is provided to underpin this policy and that intervention, positive and preventative action is funded where necessary.



Raise achievement and accelerate pupils’ progress so that the overall rate of progress, and the specific rates of progress for particular groups, are at least in line with the national expectations, including the progress of all class groups, ability groups, gender groups, special educational needs groups, and pupil premium groups.
