Equalities and Inclusion

Logo with Values(4)

St. Catherine's of Siena said, 'Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire." These words make up our school logo and are the heart of what we believe about each person who is a part of our school community.

At St. Catherine’s Catholic Primary School we believe that equality of opportunity and the inclusion of all members of our school community (staff, children and parents or carers) should be at the centre of what we do. Staying true to our mission means that St. Catheinre's will continually strive to be a community where everyone will find security and respect for themselves, their families and their traditions.

Each member of the school community and everyone we meet is valued and respected. We try to follow Jesus in sharing with, and caring for, one another. 

The term inclusion describes the removal of barriers. To “include” is to embrace all people regardless of age, race, gender, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation, pregnancy, maternity or gender reassignment. 

The Equality Act 2010 requires us to publish information that demonstrates that we have due regard for the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct  prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.

We believe that the Equality Act provides a framework to support our commitment to valuing diversity, tackling discrimination, promoting equality and fostering good relationships between people. It also ensures that we continue to tackle issues of disadvantage and underachievement of different groups.
