Whitefriars School is proud to be a fully inclusive school. Our goal is to equip all our pupils with the knowledge, skills and character to lead successful lives.

We are committed to promoting equality and diversity for all our pupils, parents and staff. We make sure that we consider equality and the possible implications for all pupils and especially those with protected characteristics.

We expect all members of our community and everyone who enters our school to behave in a way which respects the protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010.

Whitefriars School is committed to ensuring equality of provision throughout the school community. To achieve this, our equality objectives (2021-2024) are as follows:

Objective 1: To train all members of staff and directors involved in recruitment and selection on equal opportunities and non-discrimination

Objective 2: To raise equality awareness with pupils and staff, ensuring tolerance and respect towards individuals who identify with any of the protected characteristics.

Objective 3: To ensure that the school promotes role models and heroes that young people positively identify with, who reflect and broaden the school’s diversity in terms of race, gender and other protected characteristics.
