Lincolnshire Wolds Federation is committed to ensuring Equal Opportunities and aims to create a working environment in which all individuals are able to make best use of their skills, free from discrimination or harassment, and in which all decisions are based on merit. We demonstrate this throughout our work within our schools, wider community and recruitment and retention of our staff team. This is highlighted through our shared Mission Statement, to provide an inspiring, purposeful and personalised education for all every day, in order to support learning for life and working for the future, and are accountable to the following shared values to enable students to dream, believe and ACHIEVE.
As part of LWCT, we ensure every student is entitled to the same opportunities to learning irrespective of race, culture, gender, language, disability or religion.
The policy is written with regard to the following legislation; The Equality Act 2010 and The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) Regulations 2011. Click here to read our full Inclusion and Equal Opportunities Policy
