Diversity Week 4th - 8th July:
The Royal Liberty School continues to celebrate the diversity of its community and strives to ensure equality and inclusion. We believe that Equality and diversity are crucial in society to eliminate discrimination and unfair treatment. Equality means that each person has a fair chance to opportunities, no matter what their background. Diversity means that a group should celebrate people from all backgrounds and with different characteristics and that no one should be discriminated against because of being different. Ofsted guidance August 2021
Promoting positive equality and diversity ensures that schools are inclusive of all staff and children; giving children the foundation for anti-discriminatory values to take through other areas of their life. There is a Public Sector Equality Duty introduced by the Equality Act 2010 which ensures that schools must eliminate direct and indirect discrimination and well as reduce thechances of victimisation and harassment.
In November 2014 the Department for Education published guidance on promoting British values in schools "to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.’’
Through its programme of events, trips, extra-curricular activities, SMSC lessons and form time and Assembly programme, The Royal Liberty School aims to be compliant with its legal obligations but more importantly provide educational opportunities that allow our young men to develop into well rounded citizens who will enjoy happy, successful futures.
