Equality and Diversity

Bourton Meadow

Equality Objectives 2021

At Bourton Meadow Academy our values underpin all we do. We have six core values; integrity, resilience, independence, compassion, respect and curiosity. They form part of our everyday learning at school and support our children in having the confidence to develop and use their core beliefs and positive influences to make the right choices.

We respect the unique contribution which every individual can make to our school community and we believe through our broad and balanced curriculum children leave our school as responsible, respectful and active citizens that embrace and champion equality for all.

As an inclusive school we embrace the Equalities Act 2010 and have due regard for the need to:


  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.
