At Newnham St Peter's Primary School we are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers irrespective of race, gender, disability, belief, sexual orientation, age or socio-economic background. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to the school feel proud of their identity and ability to participate fully in school life.
We tackle discrimination through the positive promotion of equality, by challenging bullying and stereotypes and by creating an environment which champions respect for all.
We believe that diversity is a strength which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit us.
As a Church of England School we identify Christian values that underpin the whole of our community. These values inform our school's vision, aims and ethos, the design of our curriculum, all policies and statement, planning and the school's management and governance.
We provide all our pupils with the opportunity to succeed and to reach the highest levof personal achievement. We do this by:
Our admissions arrangements are fair and transparent and do not discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, sexuality, religion, belief, disability and/or socio-economic background.
All staff appointments and promotions are made on the basis of merit and ability and in compliance with the law. We are keen to ensure that the staffing of the school reflects the diversity of our community.
The Governing Board have set the following Equality Objectives for the four academic years commencing September 2019. These will be monitored by the Governing Board regularly, and reviewed at least annually in the summer term.
