Equality & Diversity

St Christopher’s Multi Academy Trust (Trust) are committed to ensuring and promoting equality of opportunity for all children, staff, parents, and guardians irrespective of race, gender, disability, belief, sexual orientation, sex/gender identity (including gender reassignment), and age.

Our aim is to develop a culture of diversity and inclusion in which all those within our Trust and school communities can celebrate their identity and participate fully in experiences and learning. Enabling our children to take part as fully as possible, in every part of school life, by developing each child’s self-confidence, recognising their strengths, and encouraging them to achieve their full potential.

We challenge discrimination through the positive promotion of equality through learning, tackling bullying, racism, and stereotyping, and by creating a safe welcoming environment that champions respect for all.

Our Trust has a firm belief that diversity is a strength that must be respected and celebrated by all of those who learn with us and visit us.

Our Equality & Diversity Policy covers all individuals working at all levels, including staff, consultants, contractors, trainees, home-workers, part-time and fixed-term staff, volunteers, the governing board, casual workers, and agency staff. It also applies to the wider community such as children, job applicants, ambassadors, and parents/guardians.

Our Equality Objectives set out our approach to promoting equality and diversity and how we will tackle discrimination and challenge social exclusion.  It outlines our commitment, actions, reviews, and how we comply with the law to ensure that equality and diversity are promoted in our establishment and that our staff, children, and community are not subject to, and do not commit, unlawful acts of discrimination.
