Equality objectives at Treviglas
We will ensure that every student irrespective of race, disability, gender, religion and belief or sexual orientation is able to achieve high standards and that strategies are in place to tackle under–achievement. We will ensure that every student has access to the necessary support required to enable them to achieve their highest potential. We will ensure that the school’s procedures for disciplining students and managing behaviour are fair, effective and equitable.
Our intention is to ensure that the adults working or volunteering in the school include as much as possible a balanced gender mix, appropriate representation of diverse ethnic groups and disabled people. We believe that this will provide good role models for students from all backgrounds.
We will involve students, staff, parents, carers, and all other stakeholders in the development of our scheme. They need to be involved from the very start and their involvement will inform the preparation, development, publication, review and reporting of the scheme. The aim is to ensure that we meet the needs of people from different ethnic backgrounds, boys and girls, and children and adults with disabilities.
Treviglas promotes equal treatment for all: students, members of staff or job applicants irrespective of race, colour, sexual orientation, nationality, ethnic origin, religion, political belief, disability, age, gender or marital status and to ensure that this is managed in such a way that Treviglas Academy complies with Equal Opportunities legislation and Codes of Practice.
