We are all different in different ways.
At Kings Langley School we know this, accept it and celebrate it.
Sometimes difference within a community can cause confusion, discrimination and fear. At Kings Langley School we use our strongest tool: education, to help students and staff understand difference, so that we can foster an inclusive environment for all.
We respond to students’ needs and wishes swiftly, this has resulted in themed assemblies around equality, ambassador groups and further embedding equality into our curriculum.
We regularly have outside specialists and support groups come into our school to work with staff and students when there is an area that we feel we need more specialised training in. Our protected characteristics from the Equality Act 2010 are;
- Sexual Orientation
- Gender reassignment
- Pregnancy and maternity
- Religion or belief
As a school we strive to ensure there are equal opportunities for all the individuals above and that they do not encounter discrimination. All reports are taken seriously and investigated and we encourage our staff and students to speak up when dealing with these issues.
Sometimes outside influences can affect the attitudes of people within a community, society at large can affect how our students understand each other. As these types of changes happen we continue to put the learning first. For a child to learn they need to feel safe and accepted to unlock their potential for life, this is why equality and inclusion is so important to our community.
We ensure inclusion of all students in the support we provide for Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) and Mental Health and Wellbeing. More detailed information on these can be found on our website.
