Equality Statement

The Governors and staff of Langdale Primary School are committed to the principle and practice of equality of opportunity.

We have an inclusive ethos which means all staff, pupils and parents work together to ensure that everyone, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, disability or social background can thrive.

Alongside our commitment to valuing the cultural inheritance of all the pupils in the school we also develop our pupils understanding and appreciation of equality and diversity, in both the school and the wider British society.

Through our RSHE scheme, RE scheme, themed weeks, cultural days and assemblies, we ensure our pupils consider and value diversity and celebrate different cultural inheritances.

Pupils are taught to respect and celebrate difference and understand that everyone, regardless of race, gender, sexuality or disability has equal value. Staff model respect and understanding in all their dealings within school. 

Our equality objectives are:

  • To promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through all appropriate curricular and extra-curricular opportunities.  We aim to meet this objective with particular reference to issues of equality and diversity.
  • To reduce prejudice and increase understanding of equality through direct teaching across the curriculum
  • To narrow the gap between less able learners and the rest of the children.
  • To eradicate prejudice related bullying in relation to the protected characteristics listed in the Equality Act 2010.
  • To tackle prejudice and promote understanding in relation to people with disabilities
