The school is incredibly proud to have been awarded the Silver RACE Charter Mark.
By receiving this award, we have been recognised nationally for our commitment
to improving race equality and prioritising an inclusive culture where staff, students, parents and
partners of all ethnicities are equally valued.
Developed by SSAT (the Schools, Students and Teachers network) and Fig Tree International,
the Race and Conscious Equality (RACE) Charter Mark is for schools, academies and colleges, both
in the state and private sectors, in the UK who wish to demonstrate their commitment to
action and improvement in relation to race equality in all aspects of their work as educators,
employers and community leaders.
To achieve the charter mark we completed a comprehensive package of training
for governors, senior leaders and middle leaders, and submitted an evaluation detailing our work
towards equality so far and an action plan pledging our commitment to ongoing development in this area.
Angelia Idun, Director of Education, SSAT said:

work with the school to see their strategic vision fully realised”
Ann Palmer, CEO, Fig Tree International said:
