In Cawdor we believe that our children, staff, family members and the community should be treated with fairness, dignity and respect. The school’s Equality and Diversity policy is driven by the Equality Act (2010), through having due regard to the need to:
- eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act
- advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
- foster good relationships between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
We aim to integrate the Equality Act (2010) and the United Nations Convention on the Rights for the Child (UNCRC, 2014) into our curriculum to develop the knowledge, skills, values and attributes set out in the four capacities of Curriculum for Excellence.
The school follow’s Highland Council’s guidance on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion:
