Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
At St James CE Primary School, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) are at the heart of everything that we do, helping our children to understand the meaning of these words. We are committed to everyone in our school community experiencing equality of opportunity, respect for the individual, and feeling included as a member of our school family. We celebrate diversity and promote a culture where everyone can thrive and be proud of who they are, without prejudice or discrimination.
All pupils are taught that everyone is equal, regardless of their home or family background, their economic status, their race, culture or beliefs. Each one of us is entitled to have equal access to all opportunities.
We encourage everyone in school to have respect for our environment and to value each other, regardless of the differences between us.
To support this intent, EDI is now regularly discussed at Governing Body and School Leadership level and our staff will access training on this. We will also monitor equality of representation and inclusivity across curriculum and enrichment activities at St James.
