Equal Opportunities

The school motto ‘Love Proves Itself By Deeds’ encourages us to show our care for one another through all that we do for one another. 

Christ himself taught us not to judge and to ‘Love thy neighbour’. These Gospel values must underpin our belief that all people should be treated equally.  The school exists principally to serve Catholic families living and worshipping in the Catholic Parish of St. Teresa’s.  We are committed to ensuring that all those children or adults learning and working in St Teresa’s school will always be treated fairly and equally.

Equality statement based on the Equalities Act 2010:

We aim to be a community where everyone is treated fairly and with respect. We want everyone to reach their potential, and recognise that for some pupils extra support is needed to help them to achieve and be successful.

We take our legal duties on equality seriously. We welcome our general duty under the Equality Act 2010 to eliminate discrimination, to advance equality of opportunity and to foster good relations.

We are required to publish equality information as well as equality objectives, which show how we plan to reduce or remove particular inequalities or disadvantages.
