Equalities

 

Ashton Park School is a member of the Gatehouse Green Learning Trust. As such we fully endorse the GGLT Equalities statement and the Bristol Equality Charter

 

Gatehouse Green Learning Trust is committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all members of its community, Our aim is to create an inclusive culture that gives everyone the chance to thrive by ensuring that individuals are able to make best use of their skills, free from discrimination or harassment. We believe that the process of teaching and learning widens horizons, shapes futures and enhances life chances for all our children. We recognise and celebrate diversity in its widest form and know that by encouraging a diverse workforce we are providing all our young people with excellent role models. Equality and diversity are key elements of our Trust vision and values and are therefore intrinsic to the Trust’s strategic planning, policies and procedures. 

 

A copy of the Ashton Park School Equalities Policy is available here. Which also includes information about our equalities objectives. 

 

Equalities Group

At Ashton Park, we are proud of our student leadership, and our equalities work is no exception. We have an equalities group which runs weekly on a Thursday lunchtime for students to meet, discuss ideas and get support around any of our equalities strands. Smaller groups of students work closely with a supervising member of staff on specific issues such as racism, LGBTQ+ inclusion or sexism. These groups advise the Senior Leadership Team on actions needed to make the school more inclusive, offer training to students and staff, and shape the direction of our future equalities work. 

 

Any student in any year group is welcome to be a part of this work and should speak to Mr Mantegna or your Head of Year / House for further details.
