Our vision is to be a creative school where everyone learns together in an inclusive, inspiring and nurturing Christian community where all children and adults are loved and achieve their best.
We want to reduce disadvantages, discrimination and inequalities of opportunity, and promote diversity in terms of our pupils, our workforce and the community in which we work. We are committed to promoting the understanding of the principles and practices of equality - treating all members of our school as individuals, irrespective of physical appearance, gender, race, religion, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, academic ability, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity, according to their needs with an awareness of our diverse society and appreciating the value of difference.
We actively seek to challenge discrimination and we promote an anti-bullying stance which makes clear the unacceptability of racist, disablist and homophobic, bi-phobic and transphobic bullying and language.
