At the Federation of Newent Schools, we celebrate difference and teach children that no person is the same, but that we all have the right to be treated equally. We give children the skills and knowledge to be able to voice their concerns if they are not being treated equally. Through our Personal, Social and Health Education lessons, through the adults modelling equality and through our peer role models we demonstrate our ethos. We actively promote equality through our resources, our school values, our promotion of British values and our school environment.
We do not accept any inequality but we are realistic that there will be incidents within school and on the playground and we actively work to alleviate the affects of inequality, learn from it and put in measures to prevent it happening again. We diligently foster good relations between all children within our school, no matter their sex, race, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation or gender assignment.
As a school, we are conscious that we are creating the community of the future as well as influencers on the current community. We want our school to contribute to the community and ensure that there are excellent relations between our students and staff with the wider environment.
