We built our school community based on equality and a sense of personal responsibility. Every student and member of staff at Redhill has an equal right to success. As part of the Redhill Trust, we are part of the Redhill Equality Commission; ensuring that all members of our community are treated equally, fairly, and with respect.
The Redhill Academy is proud to have a diverse school community, valuing the individuality of all young people. Our goal is to equip students with the skills and confidence they need to reach their full potential. We want them to be passionate about their learning and creative in their thinking. We are committed to giving all our pupils every opportunity to excel offering a broad and balanced curriculum and having high expectations of all our students. We actively encourage students to seize every opportunity and create an environment in which all students can challenge themselves and realise their true potential.
Educating the students at Redhill, and ourselves, on what we can do to promote equality, diversity and inclusion is a significant aspect of our work together. We hope that all students who attend Redhill will also understand that their impact on the lives of others is crucial to everyone’s well-being and success.
At the Redhill Academy we recognise that equality of opportunity is a fundamental right, and we have set out the following objectives in order to achieve this. These objectives should be considered in conjunction with our equalities' statement:
- To maintain an ethos which respects and values all people;
- To ensure that the curriculum makes explicit and implicit provision to promote and celebrate diversity and actively challenges stereotypes and prejudiced attitudes, particularly focussing on students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development;
- To prepare students for life in modern Britain;
- To have high expectations of behaviour which demonstrates respect to others;
- To eliminate all forms of unfair indirect and direct discrimination, bullying, harassment, victimisation and other oppressive behaviour;
- To take positive action to provide encouragement and support to individuals and groups whose progress has been limited by protected characteristics;
- To make reasonable adjustments within the resources available to remove barriers which limit or discourage access to educational provision and activities;
- To promote good relationships amongst all people within the Trust and the individual Academies and the wider community within which we work;
- To monitor and review the implementation of equality and diversity within the Trust and the individual Academies within the Trust;
- To challenge stereotypes that can deny opportunities to students through option and careers guidance.
- To ensure that recruitment and selection procedures and practises within the Trust and the individual Academies within the Trust are open and transparent and ensure that fair and equal selection criteria is applied;
These equality objectives will be reviewed and republished every 4 years. The next review date is 1 July 2025.
