Equality, diversity and disability access

There is a commitment to providing equal opportunities for everyone with different needs relating to culture, religion and beliefs.

Wilsic Hall imageThe 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. Wilsic Hall School operates a ‘Total Approach to Communication’ where everyone has access to information in a range of formats including speech, signing and symbols.

All children, young adults and 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 each young person and staff member is supported to realise their potential.

The school’s philosophy and practices fully support an approach which ensures that all children and young adults, whatever their background or their circumstances, have the best possible opportunities to be healthy, stay safe, enjoy life and achieve, make a positive contribution and attain economic well-being.
