The school is committed to equality of opportunity for all its pupils, regardless of sex, religion, physical ability or social background. The school is committed to assessing all policies and practices to ensure there are no negative impact on any group of people. To ensure this, the school has developed a proactive programme of study which challenges all aspects of discrimination. This is done through a variety of activities which encourage discussion of relevant issues and help to foster tolerance and build positive relationships. Discrimination in any form be it action or inaction is not tolerated.
In addition to the above programme, staff ensure that all children have access to every aspect of the curriculum and that teaching programmes are planned regardless of sex, social background, religion or race.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission’s Technical Guidance for Schools in Scotland is the essential guide for the school community to promote equality. This information can be accessed at:
