Equality, diversity and disability access

There is a commitment to providing equal opportunities for young people with differing needs relating to culture, religion and beliefs.

The school supports young people who have English as an additional language by providing access to resources in their first language. We will endeavour to produce written documentation in the preferred language and, where appropriate, the services of an interpreter will be sourced. Fullerton House School operates a ‘Total Communication Approach’ where people have access to information in a range of formats including speech, signing and symbols.

Everyone we support, including staff, will receive fair and equal treatment based on their abilities or needs, in all aspects of our employment and service provision.

Hesley Group prohibits acts of unlawful or unjustifiable discrimination and respects the fundamental human right of every young person not to be discriminated against on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, gender and sexual orientation.

We are committed to promoting community cohesion within our services. We will strive to ensure that each young person and staff member is supported to realise their potential.

The school’s philosophy and practices are aimed at ensuring that everyone, whatever their background or their circumstances, have the support they need to be healthy, stay safe, enjoy life and achieve, make a positive contribution and attain economic well-being.

As a school we actively promote British Values in our curriculum and everyday actions. all staff and young people are supported in displaying respect for the British Values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect/tolerance of all faiths and beliefs.
