Position Statement for Equality and Diversity
Fundamentally we recognise and celebrate the differences that exist between individuals and characteristic groups throughout our society and in the World as a whole.
At the core of our work is the belief that all are equal and entitled to the provision of opportunities and experiences on an equal basis so that all can benefit, develop and achieve.
It is not for schools simply to teach about the ills of the past and the issues of the present, but rather to be at the forefront of the mission to tackle discrimination, to champion equality and to celebrate diversity.
You can download our policies from the “Statutory Policy” section of this website.
It makes clear our aims in promoting equality and defending diversity.
These are as follows:
As to how we propose to fulfil these aims, we have worked hard to develop a robust series of guiding principles:
Bradworthy Academy prides itself on its full and rounded education and on its tradition of producing fully rounded, independent learners who are respectful of others and their characteristics and who value and celebrate the differences that individuals and characteristic groups have.
We believe that this provides a foundation for the rest of our students’ lives.
Our school is not situated in a geographic area which benefits from the richness and diversity provided by characteristic groups, however we are not complacent – striving to recognise our own shortcomings and those of society so that we can develop and provide opportunities and experiences which provide a gateway to the issues and attitudes which are so important in addressing all of the above.
