Equality & Diversity
This Equality policy for Longhill High School brings together policies and action plans for Race, Gender and Disability equality, meeting the statutory duties in these areas.
It promotes Community cohesion such as religion & faith, sexual orientation, transgender, students who are parents, age and every aspect which has the potential to discriminate against or to devalue any individuals within our community such as against those with special educational needs or potential language barriers.
We are further committed to the development of cohesive communities both within our physical boundaries and within our local, national and global environments. Our school embraces the aim of working together with others to improve children’s educational and health and wellbeing outcomes and notes the rights set out in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Our Equality policy is inclusive of our whole school community – students, staff, parents/carers and visitors, who have been involved in and contributed to its development. It explains how we aim to listen to and involve pupils, staff, parents and the community in achieving better outcomes for our children and young people.
