Equality and Diversity

Bridgetown Primary School is a successful school which strives to equip pupils as independent individuals who are able to contribute fully and thrive in our complex, multi-faceted society as lifelong learners.

 

We believe the strength and character of our successful school lies with its ability to create an inclusive learning environment enriched by working with the wider community.

 

The primary aim of Bridgetown Primary School is to enable all pupils to take part as fully as possible in every part of school life by developing each child’s self-confidence, recognising their strengths and encouraging them to achieve their full potential.

 

At Bridgetown Primary School we will take steps to advance equality of opportunity, foster good relations and eliminate discrimination or harassment across all the protected characteristics (age, race, gender reassignment, disability, marriage and civil partnership, religion and belief, pregnancy and maternity, gender, sexual orientation) within the school community.
