* To provide differentiated provision to meet all pupils’ learning needs including those with disabilities and/or special educational needs

* We strive to ensure the school environment gives pupils equal access to facilities and resources

* To narrow the gap between disadvantaged children and their peers

* To tackle prejudice and promote understanding in relation to people with disabilities

* To eradicate prejudice related to bullying in relation to the relevant protected characteristics listed in the Equality Act 2
