Accessibility, Equality and Diversity

At St Chad’s, our school vision, (LOVE God; LOVE Neighbour; LOVE self) and our school values of love, friendship, compassion and respect, underpin everything that we do. We believe that all children are loved by God and are individually unique. We are fully committed to ensuring that every child in our care fulfils their potential in all aspects of their lives: physically, academically, socially, morally and spiritually. Every child should be revered and respected as a member of a community where all are known and loved by God. Therefore: 
  • We value all of God’s children. 

  • We do our best to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect. 

  • We make sure the school is a safe, welcoming, secure and stimulating place for everyone. 

  • We recognise that people have different needs, and we understand that treating people equally does not always involve treating them all exactly the same.  

  • We recognise that for some children extra support is needed to help them to achieve and be successful. 

  • We do our best to make sure that people from different groups are consulted and involved in our decisions, for example through talking with children, parents, carers and governors, and through our School Council, Parents’ Forum and Governing Body. 

At St Chad's, we actively seek to remove the barriers to learning and participation that can hinder or exclude children, staff and all those who are part of our school community or use our facilities. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which people feel free to disclose their disability and can participate fully in school life.
