We are all completely aware of the challenges that the Covid-19 pandemic has brought to education over the last year. The whole school community is working together to respect all safety measures to ensure that our students can follow their lessons on site. We also adhere to the following:
Safeguarding: we are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and other third parties to share this commitment. Safer recruitment practice and pre-employment checks will be undertaken before any appointment is confirmed.
Diversity: our success depends on our staff and the scope of our difference is a source of pride. We believe this diversity positively promotes global citizenship and reflects the value of contribution irrespective of one’s personal characteristics and/or background.
Equal opportunities: we are committed to preserving and promoting equality of opportunity in all sections of our community.
