Equality, Values and Ethos


As a school, we follow our Equality Accessibility policy and are an inclusive school.  It is one of our core values to treat everyone, pupils, staff, visitors and partners of the school with respect.  We work with the Equality Act 2010 (and updated Equality Act Guidance 2016) to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations in relation to age (as appropriate), disability, ethnicity, gender, religion and sexual identity.  See Equality Accessibility Policy.

Values and Ethos

Our RISE values encompass everything we do as a school.  Our pupils have received RISE value wristbands in their house colour, choosing the RISE value that means the most to them.  Our school aims, to be introduced school wide in September 2017 are:

Be the Difference

Create History

Inspire the future

Make it Count

These values and ethos are backed up by our whole school reward system Class Charts.  Our pupils are rewarded when demonstrating one of our core values in their school work or in and around the community.
