At Headlands School, we are committed to ensuring equality of education and opportunity for all students, staff, parents and carers receiving services from the school, irrespective of ethnicity, gender, disability, faith, sexual orientation, culture or 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.

We tackle prejudice and discrimination by the positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereotypes and creating an environment which champions respect for all.

We believe that diversity is a strength, which should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here. The school is committed to the principles, aims and duties that apply to schools in the Public Sector Equality Duty Act.

Our curriculum and pastoral care promotes good relations, tolerance and friendship – with a shared understanding of a range of religions or cultures.

The Pupil Premium Strategy Statement, also available on the school website, is relevant to demonstrating the school’s continual drive to ensure that all students succeed and are not disadvantaged in their educational outcomes, regardless of their parental income.
