Equality Information and Objectives

‘Together we are great’

At Great Chesterford C. of E. Primary Academy, we aim to provide the best possible education for each child within a caring, Christian community. Our values promote inclusion, respect and empathy whilst our broad and balanced curriculum inspires aspirational, lifelong learners.

All staff and governors are committed to working together to provide a safe, nurturing and inclusive learning environment to ensure every pupil is part of the school community, whatever their ability or need.

From April 2012 schools were expected to meet the requirements of the Equality Act. The Equality Act 2010 replaced all existing equality legislation, including the Disability Discrimination Act. The effect of the law is the same as in the past, meaning that “schools cannot unlawfully discriminate against pupils because of sex, race, disability, religion or belief and sexual orientation”.

Great Chesterford C. of E. Primary Academy is committed to providing an environment that enables full curriculum access that values and includes all pupils, staff, parents and visitors regardless of their education, physical, sensory, social, spiritual, emotional and cultural needs. We are committed to taking positive action in the spirit of the Equality Act 2010 with regard to disability and to developing a culture of inclusion, support and awareness within the school.
