Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
As a school and as part of the Bourne Education Trust we are committed to the promotion of equality, diversity and inclusion for all. These principles are crucial in supporting our culture and school values; they are also integral to delivering successful learning, teaching and personal development.
As a school we are committed to the ideas and actions set out in our EDI action plan and which underpin the Bourne Education Trust's strategic plan. At the heart of this plan is an ambition to embed the principles of equality, diversity, and inclusion in our culture. This requires a commitment from everyone to take responsibility; to embrace these principles and apply them in our daily activities as a community.
Best practice in this area means covering issues across our community in a holistic manner, as well as addressing the specific needs of distinct groups of children and adults. We believe that this will also bring renewed focus to our work in promoting wellbeing, supporting good mental health, and tackling the factors that undermine equality, diversity, and inclusion.
Our intention is to be recognised as a high performing trust and the critical factor in this is the success of all pupils and staff. The Single Equality, Diversity, Inclusiveness and Belonging Scheme (‘SEDIBS’) through its implementation will support us in this success.
All this works towards ensuring that everyone within our diverse community feels equally able to achieve their absolute best.
