We can all benefit from…
Treating others as they wish to be treated
1. We welcome our duty under the Education and Inspections Act 2006 to promote community cohesion.
2. We recognise that these duties reflect international human rights standards as expressed in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities and the Human Rights Act 1998.
In fulfilling the legal obligations referred to above we are guided by the following principles:
1. All learners are of equal worth
2. We recognise and respect difference
3. We foster positive attitudes and relationships, and a shared sense of cohesion and belonging
4. We observe best equalities practice in staff recruitment, retention and development
5. We aim to reduce and remove inequalities and barriers that already exist
6. We consult widely
7. Society as a whole should benefit
8. We base our policies and practice on sound evidence
9. We work towards measurable equality objectives
As part of this work we are also very proud and excited to be currently supporting and working with:
> EqualiTeach (http://www.equalitiesaward.co.uk/) and the Free to Be project as we pursue the Gold Equalities Award
> Think Equal (https://thinkequal.org/) – we are currently taking part in the UK’s first pilot for Think Equal’s brilliant Social and Emotional Learning EYFS programme (SIAL also hosted and supported the training of the teachers involved with the pilot)
> Show Racism the Red Card (https://www.theredcard.org/) and helping to spread anti-racism awareness across the UK (indeed, we recently fundraised for ‘Wear Red Day’ (18.10.19.) (#wearredday).
