The School is committed to providing equal opportunities. All members of the School’s community, including pupils, parents, employees, governors and visitors are entitled to be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of protected characteristics.

The School aims to:

 eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment or victimisation on the grounds of protected characteristics defined in the Equality Act as: sex, gender reassignment, race, disability, sexual orientation, religion, age, maternity and pregnancy. educate pupils and all members of the School community to understand others and value diversity in an inclusive and secure environment, preparing them for life in a diverse society;

 enable each pupil to achieve the outcomes of “Every Child Matters” (stay safe, be healthy, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution and enjoy economic wellbeing); and

 actively respond to reduce any actual, potential or claimed discrimination and disadvantage.

 put in place reasonable adjustments for disabled employees, pupils and other members of the school community.

 recognise people with protected characteristics and behave sensitively to their social needs.


Further information regarding equality within our school can be found in our Equality policy on our Policies page.



To enable a proper investigation, concerns or complaints should be brought to the attention of the academy as soon as possible. In general, any matter raised more than 3 months after the event being complained of, will not be considered. 

Information about our complaints procedure can be found in our Complaints policy on the Policies page.



In-keeping with our Christian ethos and Mission Statement, we aim to teach every child right from wrong through positive messages and recognition of the unique value of each child. Normally, where parents work in partnership with us we achieve this.

In exceptional cases, if the child persistently disrupts the learning of others parents may be asked to sit with them in lessons.

As a very last resort, if a child, despite support and intervention strategies, poses a risk to him/herself and to others, a fixed or permanent exclusion will
be considered.

Please see our behaviour policy on the Policies page.
