Studfall Junior Academy

Equality Objectives

At Studfall Junior Academy, we aim to ensure equal opportunities for all pupils, staff, parents and carers, irrespective of race, disability, gender, religion, sexual orientation or socio-economic background. We are committed to providing a culture of diversity and inclusion, in which the school community feel proud of their identity and are able to participate fully in school life. We tackle discrimination through the positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereotypes and by creating an environment which promotes respect and tolerance for all.

In compliance with the public sector equality duty, Studfall Junior Academy has carefully considered the key areas to ensure that we provide an environment where all children, visitors and staff are welcomed, valued and are treated equally. This work is obviously crucial and will always be ongoing. It will be reviewed annually.
