Swindon Academy believes that all children have an equal right to the provision of education: At Swindon Academy we aim:
To engender positive attitudes among our Academy community so that everyone respects the rights of all people and challenges inequalities based on ability, gender, ethnicity, language, culture, age, class, disability or religion. We want all our students and staff to feel valued as we celebrate their uniqueness.
To prepare our students for adult life in a multi-cultural, multi-lingual society.
To ensure that all individuals in our Academy have opportunities to achieve. To remove the barriers to success based on prejudice, discrimination or fear of harassment so that people develop high self-esteem, are confident and secure in their own identities and are therefore able to take a full part in the learning and development opportunities afforded by our Academy.
To promote equality by examining our policy and practice in Academy, ensuring that resources like extra classroom support are allocated to all groups according to their need. To work to eliminate any disadvantage faced by different groups within the Academy so that all pupils have full access to the curriculum.
