At Sopley School our commitment to equality is underpinned by the following statements agreed by members of our school community.

Our aim is to promote a fair and respectful culture for all in our community.

Sopley School Council (July 2010) chose the following words to describe this aim ……. “We think that children need to be helped to work hard to understand things. All people should be treated the same as you would like to be treated yourself.”

We use our web pages to publish updates, reports, policies for review and to invite comments – this information evidences the school’s commitment to the public sector equality duty.

We have a Federation Equalities Policy and Accessibility Plan which incorporates; policy, equalities objectives, accessibility plans and an annual equalities update – stakeholders were consulted in the preparation of this document.
