We recognize that we have the duty to ensure that everyone who enters the school building has a right to be treated in a fair and equitable way.

  • To achieve this we pledge to respect equal human rights of all our students.
  • We shall also respect the equal rights of our staff and other members of the community.
  • In particular we will comply with relevant legislation and implement school policies and plans in relation to race and religious equality, disability equality and gender equality.
