Shepton Mallet Community Infants’ School & Nursery
Our school and nursery are committed to equality. We try to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and has equality of opportunity. We also work to develop good relations between people from different groups. We recognise that in wider society, people are not always treated fairly.
We try to make sure that our school and nursery is a safe and secure place for everyone. We do not put up with unfair treatment or bullying of any kind.
We recognise that people have different needs and we understand that treating people equally does not always involve treating them all the same. When people face particular difficulties they need extra support to help them achieve success and we try to do this for people in our school community.
We also try to make sure that people from different groups are consulted and involved in our decisions, for example through talking to pupils and parents/carers, and through our School Council.
Britain as a country is very committed to making society a fair place and the Government asks all schools to help with this. We are asked to set equality objectives and to make sure we review our progress every year and let people know how we are getting on. Our school has several equality objectives.
If you would like to know more about what our school is doing to create greater equality then Mrs Thompson, Headteacher, or Mrs Lovell, Chair of Governors, will be only too happy to discuss this with you.
