In Ladywell Primary School we feel that it is vitally important to the well-being of our pupils that all are treated fairly and that all should feel valued. We expect that the pupils in turn should value and respect each other and other members of the school and the wider community.
The school is committed to assessing all policies and practices to ensure there are no negative impact on any group.
It is the policy of the school not to discriminate against either gender, race, religion, culture nor to divide children into boys and girls for any activity or in any place in the school. The only exceptions to the above are the use of separate toilets for boys and girls. Teaching within the school is designed to prepare both boys and girls for a world where sexual discrimination is far less rigid than it has been in the past. This is encouraged by the use of non-sexist stories throughout the school at all stages.
Work is also undertaken at appropriate times in the year to deal with inequality caused by disability or colour. Racial harassment is not acceptable and steps are taken to ensure that all children are aware of this.
As part of Social Inclusion, more and more children with disabilities will be attending main stream school and this will enable all children to become aware of the problems. Children with behavioural /social difficulties are catered for along with other children through Circle Time.
The school is committed to assessing all policies and practices to ensure there are no negative impact on any group of people. Through our health and Wellbeing programme we teach, “PATHS” and “Being Cool in School” which addresses behaviours, choices and decision making.
