Ethos College Equality Objectives


Ethos College, as a member of Ethos Academy Trust, is committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers receiving provision from the service, irrespective of age, disability, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, socio-economic background, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership and pregnancy and maternity  We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to the Academy feel proud of their identity, able to participate fully in the provision offered and feel valued, cared for and listened to. The development of a positive self-image, self-advocacy, respect for others and an awareness of the value of each individual’s contribution to the school community is an integral part of our ethos.

The achievement of pupils will be monitored by race, sex, Pupil Premium eligibility and SEND and we will use this data to support pupils,  raise standards and ensure inclusive teaching. We will tackle discrimination by the positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereotypes and creating an environment which champions respect for all. We believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, work and visit here.

Ethos College, as a member of Ethos Academy Trust, aims to meet these obligations under the Public Sector Equality Duty by having due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination and other conduct that is prohibited by the Equality Act 2010.
