Limpsfield Grange School Equality Information and Objectives

 The Equality Act 2010 requires us to publish information that demonstrates that we have due regard for the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not share it.
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not share it.

Limpsfield Grange is an inclusive and diverse school community. Our aim is for all of our students to become happy, healthy, empowered and included adults, who participate in, and contribute towards society. To enable our students to be happy and active citizens we have created a curriculum underpinned by our four areas for development:

  • Wellbeing
  • Achievement
  • Communication
  • Independence

The areas of wellbeing, achievement, communication and independence (WACI areas) present the greatest barriers to learning and success for students at Limpsfield Grange. These are the areas that we seek to address in all that we do.

The Equality Act provides a framework to support our commitment to eliminate unlawful discrimination and harassment and promote equality of opportunity, good relations and positive attitudes between people of diverse backgrounds.

Our approach to equality is based on the following key principles:

  • All learners are of equal value
  • We respect and celebrate difference
  • We foster positive attitudes and relationships and a sense of cohesion and belonging
  • We aim to reduce and remove inequalities and barriers that already exist
  • We have the highest expectations of all of our students

We have 92 students on roll, all are female and the majority (92%) are of White British background, with 8% of our cohort coming from other ethnic backgrounds. 16% of our student population is eligible for Free School Meals and 28% of our student population is  eligible for Pupil Premium funding. An additional 8% of our population is in receipt of Pupil Premium Plus funding.
