At Sir John Lillie Primary we are committed to the equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers receiving services from the school, irrespective of race, gender, disability, faith or religion or socio-economic background.
We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which everyone in our school community feels proud of their identity and able to participate fully in school life.
The achievement of pupils will be monitored by race, gender and disability and we will use this data to support pupils, raise standards and ensure inclusive teaching. We actively tackle discrimination through the positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereotypes and creating an environment in which there is respect for all.
At Sir John Lillie Primary we believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here.
We do this by:
