Inclusion

18Our policy is intrinsically supportive of our mission statement and aims.

Equal opportunities principles:

  • Discrimination on the basis of religion, colour, culture, origin, gender, or physical disability is unacceptable in our school
  • All children and staff will endeavour to further this objective by personally contributing towards a happy and caring environment and by showing respect and appreciation for each other as individuals
  • The primary objective of the academy is, therefore, to educate, develop and prepare all our children for their future lives.

Racial Harassment

Following The Stephen Lawrence Inquiry the government has accepted one of the key recommendations in terms of education which is that all schools should adopt a specific strategy to prevent racist incidents and all incidents should be monitored and reported to parents/carers, governors and the Local Authority.

The Springwell Learning Community has adopted the L.A. practices for dealing with incidents of racial harassment.
