Equality Objectives

Humphrey Perkins students are growing up in a diverse society both locally and more globally through use of social media. Our key aim is to ensure that our young people are tolerant, empathetic and respectful of the differences amongst our society and that they have the confidence to challenge all types of discrimination and negative portrayal of certain groups of people.

The school’s Equality Objectives should be read in conjunction with the wider school policies.



The School stands against all forms of discrimination on the grounds of ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or ability and other types of prejudice.

This is achieved through the following objectives:

  • Promotion of cultural understanding and awareness of different religious beliefs between different ethnic groups within our school community and beyond.
  • Monitoring and promotion of the involvement of all groups of students in the extra-curricular life of the school, including leadership opportunities, especially students with special educational needs and disabilities.
  • Actively close gaps in attainment and achievement between students and all groups of students; especially students eligible for free-school meals, students with special educational needs and disabilities, looked after children and students from minority ethnic groups.
  • Continue to improve accessibility across the school for students, staff and visitors with disabilities, including access to specialist teaching areas.
  • Endeavour to ensure that the staff body and representation of staff in leadership roles is reflective of the local community.
  • Reduce the incidence of the use of homophobic, sexist, racist and any other derogative language by students in the school.
