Inclusion & SEND

Equal Opportunities Statement
At Orchard Primary School we are proud to provide a safe, stimulating and inclusive learning environment where every member of our community is valued, respected and made to feel welcome within our mainstream setting.

It is our ethos that all children have an equal right to a full and rounded education and to enjoy high quality learning experiences through which they are able to achieve their full potential.

We are exceptionally proud of the diversity found within our school. It is our policy that everyone is treated equally regardless of gender, religion, race, nationality, social background and disability. Our aim is to create an environment in which pupils can develop their sense of self-respect, tolerance and courtesy for others.

Please see the various ‘Equalities’ policies in the School's Policy Section for more information.
