Promoting Equality at St George's
Governors and senior leaders are fully committed to promoting equality at St George's. We want to ensure that nobody faces discrimination whether that is a pupil, a member of staff, a parent or visitor to our school.
Celebrating diversity and challenging prejudice is a key part of our school’s work. It is a moral and legal expectation. OFSTED and the Department for Education charge our school leaders and governors with the responsibility to ensure that the diversity in our children, families, staff and the wider community is celebrated and safeguarded.
Our school community has diversity links through race, gender, LGBT community, religious links, cultural links, disability and community interests. We want to be known as a school that values diversity but is also firm on our stance against prejudice in any way.
We are also strengthening our equality links through curriculum work (International Women's Day, Fair Trade, Religious Studies, RESPECT Heroes etc). We are also:
- Show Racism the Red Card Campaign member
- Alliance for Inclusive Education member (promoting disability rights)
- Training with Stonewall to become school champion for LGBT community in June 2018
We want to work with our families on promoting the diversity of our community. We are planning to host assemblies, cultural days and create a diversity celebration board in our main hall(s). If you would like us to celebrate any links with your family/community please contact Mrs Susan Walters, P.A to the Senior Leadership Team. Susan's e-mail address is; email@example.com
Our reporting and planning ensures that we focus on how our provision impacts on different groups. Please see Governing Body statutory reports for more information.
Please tell us if there are any adjustments we need to make to help you support your child, for example: letters in large font; letters in different languages; wheelchair access; explaining things over the phone; a discussion with a school colleague of the same gender or involvement of an interpreter.
Attached is our Equality Policy and Accessibility Plan.
If you have any questions about these issues please refer your questions to Mrs Susan Walters, P.A to the Senior Leadership Team. Susan's e-mail address is; firstname.lastname@example.org
