Equality at RPHS
Equality at RPHS is embedded into our ethos and school community at all levels. For every young person to be prepared for life in modern Britain, it is vital that our curriculum reflects the full diversity of the world we live in. Kindness, respect, tolerance of others, equality and diversity are all values that are imperative to our school and our wider communities. We frequently seek student and staff voice on areas surrounding Equality to ensure that our school community is the most inclusive environment it can be.
In addition, Newsoms House change project is ‘Equality and Diversity’ and student house leaders have the responsibility of raising of the profile of Equality in all aspects of the school community and have come up with some amazing ideas so far!
Why is Equality important to us at RPHS?
The Equality Act 2010 places duties on schools not just to address prejudice-based bullying but also to help to prevent it happening, and in doing so to keep protected characteristic groups safe. This highlights the importance and our relentless commitment to ensuring students are provided with learning opportunities on key Equality issues in our society, and most importantly, to become informed citizens and advocates of Equality in our society.
As a school we also acknowledge the importance of collectively taking part in National Awareness Events that allow the opportunity for students to develop their understanding further about the importance of Equality for all.
