Equality Diversity and Inclusion

Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity (EDI) at Longdean School

Longdean School is a safe place for everyone.  We celebrate diversity, we actively challenge discrimination, and we are committed to being inclusive.

Longdean is a diverse school made up of many races, cultures, religions, abilities, sexualities and socio-economic backgrounds. We want every individual in our school community to have the opportunity to succeed and to reach their full potential. We acknowledge and celebrate our differences and are committed to tackling prejudice through promoting tolerance and understanding. 
Everyone in our community is expected to work together to eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation and any discriminatory behaviour should be reported and will be dealt with appropriately.  Every individual will be treated with kindness and respect and given the opportunity to overcome any barriers they may face and we expect all of our stakeholders to share in this view.
We are currently working towards the Equaliteach Silver Level Equalities Award to ensure that equality and diversity are at the forefront of our decision-making and are always a priority for our school community.
Mrs Sarah Doyle is the designated EDI Lead at Longdean School
