Throughout our school we promote equality of opportunity so that all pupils can thrive together, understanding that difference is positive, and that individual characteristics make people unique. Our inclusive environment meets the needs of all pupils, irrespective of age, disability, gender, race, religion or belief, gender or sexual orientation. Our well-considered, informed and immersive culture of Personal Development has the ability cultivate positive moral traits, dispositions and virtues. By doing so, we inform pupils’ motivation and guide their conduct so that they can reflect wisely, learn eagerly, behave with integrity and cooperate consistently well with others.
The positive relationships developed in school and the warm, inclusive culture develops pupils’ confidence, resilience and knowledge, so that they can keep themselves mentally healthy. We support pupils to recognise online and offline risks to their well-being; for example, risks from criminal and sexual exploitation, domestic abuse, substance misuse, and extremism. We make pupils aware of the support available to them, signposting services both in school and outside. Our assembly programme is suitably tailored alongside the PSHE and computing curriculum, to collectively support pupils to recognise the dangers of inappropriate use of mobile technology and social media.
