Equality and diversity

Diamond Hall Junior Academy is determined to do everything we can to make sure that people are treated fairly and that everyone has access to the best education they can. We are committed to eliminating unfair and unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and to advancing equality of opportunity and fostering good relations between different groups within the Academy and the local community.

Did you know that we have pupils from over ten countries here at Diamond Hall Junior Academy? Over half of our pupils come from an ethnic background other than White British.  

Equalities Statement

We believe all members of our school community should have the opportunity to fulfil their potential, whatever their background, identity or circumstance. We are committed to creating a community that recognises and celebrates difference within a culture of respect and co-operation.

The school is opposed to all forms of homophobia, racism and xenophobia, including those forms that are directed towards religious groups and communities, for example, Islamophobia, and against Travellers, refugees and asylum-seekers. 

We appreciate that a culture which promotes equality will create a positive environment and shared sense of belonging for all who work, learn and use the services of our school. Our commitment to equality and diversity is a fundamental part of our drive towards excellence.

Our journey towards becoming a Rights Respecting School is a very important part of our school life. We have achieved our Record of Commitment and encourage pupils to employ Rights Respecting vocabulary in all their dealings with each other.
