At The Nethersole C of E Primary Academy we understand equality to mean treating everyone with equal dignity and worth, valuing their particular characteristics such as age, disability, gender, ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation and socio-economic circumstances.
We understand that people have different needs, situations and goals. Achieving equality requires the removal of discriminatory barriers which may limit what people, especially children and young people, can do and can be. We recognise that inequality can be experienced in a variety of ways, affecting progress, access to services and independence in making life's decisions; ultimately affecting lives and creating inequality of treatment. Inequality can exist in employment opportunities, through direct and indirect discrimination and disadvantage, imposed by other individuals, groups, institutions or systems intentionally or inadvertently.
Our commitment to equality is demonstrated through our Values Statement; at 'The Nethersole C of E Primary Academy, through our church values and inclusive vision, celebrates diversity and difference, nurtures children's academic, emotional and spiritual growth. Through the teachings of Christ, we promote wisdom, respect, hope, friendship, forgiveness, thankfulness, community and reverence. Our Nethersole family, whatever our faith, joined in love, kept by God'.
