At St. Leonard’s CE Primary Academy, we are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers irrespective of any difference and to providing additional support, where necessary, to ensure this equality. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to the school feel proud of their own identity and show respect and consideration of others’ identities.
We tackle discrimination through the positive promotion of equality, by challenging bullying and stereotypes and by creating an environment which champions respect for all.
At St. Leonard’s CE Primary Academy, we celebrate the strength in diversity, build on our similarities and seek enrichment from our differences. In doing so, we promote understanding and learning between and towards others, in order to create a school environment which upholds our core principles of being safe and respectful.
Equality in Teaching and Learning
We provide all our pupils with the opportunity to succeed and to reach the highest level of personal achievement. We do this by:
Equality in Admissions and Exclusion
Our admissions arrangements are fair and transparent and do not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, religion, belief, disability and/or socio-economic background.
Equal Opportunities for Staff
All staff appointments and promotions are made on the basis of merit and ability and in compliance with the law. We are keen to ensure that the staffing of the school reflects the diversity of our community.
