Our school is 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, for example because of their: age; disability; gender; ethnicity, colour or national origin; religion or belief. We try to make sure that our school is a safe and secure place for everyone. We do not tolerate 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.

Following the adoption of new and updated Articles of Association, the Board of Directors of The Stour Academy Trust has taken the decision to disband Local Governing Bodies in favour of Parent Forums.
Listening to the views of parents and pupils is crucial to the successful development of schools and these forums are helping the Board to make strategic decisions based on the views of a much wider variety of stakeholders rather than being limited to local governance.
