Key Principles

Middlewich Primary School is an inclusive school where we focus on the well-being and progress of every child and where all members of our community are of equal worth. We believe that the Equality Act provides a framework to support our commitment to valuing diversity, tackling discrimination, promoting equality and fostering good relationships between people. It also ensures that we continue to tackle issues of disadvantage and underachievement of different groups

 

The following principles are firmly embedded in our school ethos and vision, policies and practice and our curriculum :

 

Principle 1: All learners are of equal value.

Principle 2: We recognise and respect difference.

Principle 3: We foster positive attitudes and relationships, and a shared sense of cohesion and belonging.

Principle 4: We observe good equalities practice in staff recruitment, retention and development.

Principle 5: We aim to reduce and remove inequalities and barriers that already exist.

Principle 6: We aim to consult and involve widely when creating policy.

Principle 7: Society as a whole should benefit.

Principle 8: We base our practices on sound evidence.

Principle 9: Publishing equalities data
