Equal Opportunities and Diversity
Rugby Free Primary, and all schools across Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow are inclusive; we focus on the well-being and progress of every child and we are committed to ensuring all members of our community are of equal worth.
We believe that the Equality Act provides a framework to support our commitment to valuing diversity, tackling discrimination, promoting equality and fostering good relationships between people.
We are committed to promoting and achieving equality of opportunity for all children, parents, staff, governors,
visitors and applicants to work at our school. We aim to create a working environment in which all individuals are able to make best use of their skills, free from discrimination or harassment, and in which all decisions are based on merit.
We recognise this reflects our duty to ensure that 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 are fully met. It also reflects our duty to ensure the Equality Act 2010 is implemented which prohibits discrimination, harassment and victimisation in employment.
Our School Policies reflect our commitment to equal opportunities and all our school leaders, governors, staff members and school volunteers are fully committed to treating all members of our school community equally. We are fully committed to ensuring we tackle issues of disadvantage and underachievement of different groups.
Our Staff lead by example and ensure that those they manage adhere to all school policies and our commitment with regard to equal opportunities and diversity. Our SMSC curriculum incorporates a range of different activities which teach the children about differences and the importance of equality. We embrace opportunities to teach about different religions and cultures and to celebrate diversity. We actively condemn all acts of violence and radicalisation.
Our school is a fully inclusive, happy community where our school vision, ethos and values permeate all that we do.
