At Cliffedale Primary School we value the individuality of all of our children. We are committed to giving all our children every opportunity to achieve the highest standards. We do this by taking account of pupil's varied experiences and needs. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum, and have high expectations of all children. The achievements, attitudes and well- being of all our children matter.
Our equal opportunities and accessibility policies are intended to help ensure this. Cliffedale promotes the individuality of all children, irrespective of ethnicity, religion, attainment, age, disability, gender or background.
We do not discriminate against anyone, be they staff, pupil, parent or visitor, on the grounds of ethnicity, religion, attainment, age, disability, gender or background.
We promote the principles of fairness for all through the education we provide at Cliffedale and recognise that this may entail treating some pupils differently.
We seek to ensure that all pupils have equal access to the full range of educational opportunities provided by the school.
We constantly strive to remove any forms of indirect discrimination that may form barriers to learning for some groups.
We ensure that all recruitment, employment and training systems are fair to all, and provide opportunities for everyone.
We challenge personal prejudice and stereotypical view whenever they occur.
We value each pupil’s worth, we celebrate the individuality and cultural diversity of the community centred on our school, and we show respect for all groups.
Through positive educational experiences, and support for each individual’s legitimate point of view, we aim to promote positive social attitudes, and respect for all.
