Grace Academy is driven by our ethos and shared values of Grace, Respect, Integrity, Potential and Excellence. These are at the heart of what we do and how we interact with each other. It is important to us that all the members of our community are and feel equal and valued and that this should be evident in our Academy life.
We are committed to meeting our statutory duties and acknowledge that we have a statutory requirement to:
- Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Act
- Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it
- Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.
Grace Academy has a diverse membership amongst our student and staff population and we are proud to model the key British Values of mutual respect for and tolerance of all. We aim to be an inclusive Academy as a result of which these values are embedded in our Values days, our SMSC programme and all aspects of our daily academy life. We are committed to ensuring equality of opportunity for all our students, staff, parents and carers regardless of their race, gender, disability, belief, religion or socio-economic background.
The Academy Equality Champions and Academy leadership team review the progress we are making to meet our duties with regard to the protected groups (race, disability, gender, gender re-assignment, age, pregnancy and maternity, marital status, religion and belief) under the Equality Act (2010).
The Academy Equality Champions are:
