Diversity & Inclusion

Equality & Diversity at Aylward Academy

Aylward Academy demonstrates a clear commitment to the promotion of diversity and equality as highlighted in its policies and related documents. We aim to create a fair and just school community that promotes social inclusion, community cohesion and equality that respects diversity and which challenges and acts upon all forms of discrimination and inequality, including bullying.

The Academy works actively to celebrate difference and challenge racism, sexism, homophobia and all other forms of prejudice.

The school takes positive action to promote racial harmony and to promote positive attitudes towards life in a multicultural and multi-ethnic and multi-faith school, through assemblies, the curriculum and special projects throughout the year.

There is a continuous focus to ensure that all students have equal opportunities to achieve to the best of their ability regardless of their gender, ethnic or racial background, religion, ability or sexuality.

We actively promote the British Values of tolerance, fairness, respect for other faiths, and the rule of law and democracy. Our Aylward Attributes underpin our whole school behaviour and rewards system.

Please take a look at our Academy Attributes on our website.

For an introduction to the Prevent duty and an explanation of how it aims to safeguard vulnerable people from being radicalised, HM Government has created an e-learning module following consultation with a range of individuals and organisations. The module has been created with the feedback of teachers, local authority officials, community-based groups, youth workers and many others.
