Equality & Diversity

Addington Valley Academy is committed to creating an inclusive environment, where people are treated with dignity and respect and where we anticipate and respond positively to different needs and circumstances so that everyone can achieve their potential.

We are committed to promoting and advancing equality of opportunity, not only because it is an important part of the mission, vision and values of the Academy, but also because by attracting and retaining the most diverse range of students, staff and partners, we will ensure the Academy’s future success.

We believe that everyone has the right to be treated fairly and without discrimination, regardless of their circumstances or background and to be appreciated for their genuine self.  In particular we make sure that all our policies and practice prevent discrimination against someone on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation.

We will consult and involve the school community in our decision making.
