Our Vision

'A happy school where we all have the opportunity and encouragement to achieve our fullest potential'

 

We are a school that sees diversity as an asset and we aim to treat pupils, teachers, parents and families with respect and fairness. Fundamental to this is our motto:

Everyone is different. Everyone is equal. Everyone is welcome.

The Equality Act 2010 reinforces our well-established belief that schools cannot and should not discriminate on the grounds of sex, race, disability, religion or belief or sexual orientation.

The Equality Act introduced a Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED). This has 3 main elements which form the cornerstone of all that we do and we relentlessly aspire to:

  • eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation;
  • advance equality of opportunity;
  • foster good relations.

We welcome all our children, families and visitors to help us make equal opportunities for all a reality.
