Equalities Statement 

At Constantine Primary School, we are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all pupils, staff, parents and carers receiving services from the school, irrespective of race, gender, disability, faith, religion or socio-economic background. We aim to develop a culture of inclusion and diversity in which all those connected to the school feel proud of their identity and able to participate fully in school life.  

The achievement of pupils will be monitored to ensure we support all pupils, raise standards and ensure inclusive teaching. We will tackle discrimination by the positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereotypes and creating an environment which champions respect for all. At Constantine Primary School we believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here. Constantine Primary School ensures that pupils, parents and carers, staff, volunteers, and members of the public who access our services are not discriminated against directly or indirectly because of any characteristic they have or may have had.
