Equality, Diversity & Inclusivity at Sedgehill Academy
We are extremely proud of our diverse and vibrant school community, and kindness is central to the ethos of the school meaning that we welcome students from every background, celebrate diversity and share core values.
As a fully inclusive school, we aim to create an equitable environment where all staff and pupils feel like they belong and know that all members of our school will stand up to discrimination.
We ensure that our school is fully inclusive in meeting the needs of all children and we understand that our school community is enriched by its members’ varying backgrounds. We seek to raise awareness of all protected characteristics:
- Gender reassignment
- Marriage & civil partnerships
- Pregnancy & maternity
- Religion or belief
- Sexual orientation
At Sedgehill Academy, no single member of our community is the same. Our differences are what makes us strong. Kindness and tolerance are core values that we seek to promote across the whole of our school community.
