At The Oval School, we are committed to equality for our school community. This includes all our pupils, their parents, carers and staff.We will not discriminate against anyone on the grounds of their ability, racial or ethnic origin, gender, religious beliefs or disabilities.
We welcome our statutory duty, under the Public Sector Equality Duty, not to be discriminatory in our practices as the education, wellbeing and care of every child is central to our vision and values.
We believe that the curriculum is enhanced when pupils learn to understand and respect differences of gender, race, religion, age, ability, disability, social disadvantage, sexual orientation or any other personal characteristics. We do all we can to make sure that our policies and the decisions we make consider all people who are protected under the Equality Act
