Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

At St. Hild’s Church of England School we aim to provide all of our pupils with a world class education in a Christian context.

We expect to find God at work in our school.

The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

“I have come that they may have life in all its fullness.” (John 10:10)

We embrace our Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) under the Equality Act to:

  • eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • advance equality of opportunity between different groups
  • foster good relations between different groups

We recognise that it is unlawful to discriminate against someone because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

To help us achieve the aims of the Public Sector Equality Duty, we:

  • have a trust-wide Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy which sets out the key principles we work to
  • publish at least one specific and measurable equality objective every four years
  • publish an annual equality information statement

Our approach to equality, diversity and inclusion is aligned to our trust vision and values. Our overarching aim is, “To live our mantra of knowing our children and families, community and each other well, we will foster a sense of belonging within and across our organisation, enabling our young people, staff and volunteers to thrive. By becoming a trust of sanctuary, we will create a welcoming and safe environment for all.”
