Working with others, the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion committee’s role is to develop and implement the School action plans to increase transparency and equality of opportunity within the School.     

Since 2012, our committee meets monthly to analyse and reflect on cultural practices that affect equality at all levels within the school, reporting to the School Executive Committee.  If you have an interest in our inclusivity ideas, we would love to hear from you and your ideas could help to make a difference. You can email to express an interest.
