The governing body and school is committed to a policy of equality and aims to ensure that no employee, job applicant, student or other member of the school community is treated less favourably on grounds of gender, race, colour, ethnic or national origin, marital status, age, sexual orientation, disability, religious belief or social class. Any behaviour, comments or attitudes that undermine or threaten an individual’s self esteem on these grounds will not be tolerated. We aim to provide equal access to high quality educational opportunities and to ensure that everyone feels that they are a valued member of the school community. We seek to provide a safe and happy environment where all can flourish and where diversity is celebrated. At Southchurch High School we aim to empower our students to make informed choices so that they are better prepared for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life. All members of the Southchurch High School community are responsible for promoting the school’s equal opportunities policy and are obliged to respect and act in accordance with the policy.
