Equality Objectives

Definition

The school believes that everyone is entitled to equality of opportunity regardless of race, age, physical ability, gender, sexual orientation, creed, culture or social class. For students there should be equality of access to the curriculum, extra- curricular activities, the student support system and the spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of school life.

 

High quality education depends upon:

  • Equal opportunitiesThumbnail image
  • Justice and dignity for all
  • High expectations
  • A wider choice in life
  • An understanding of others

 

Discriminatory views and behaviour are not acceptable. They damage the spirit of the school. We will challenge behaviour and counsel those involved. We will help students to understand how such views develop and how knowledge and understanding can help break down prejudice

There are 3 sections to this statement: students, staff and community
