Equality & Diversity @ Court Fields
Individuals take responsibility for their behaviours and
actions and are taught very clearly, what is right and wrong, sitting under our
equality focus of #BeKind. We proudly celebrate diversity, rather than have
tolerance of different faiths and beliefs. We use tolerance to describe what we
do not accept at Court Fields:
- We do not tolerate abuse, discrimination or harm. Students
have the knowledge of how to behave considerately towards others, with
particular understanding of protected characteristics and why these are
- British Values and protected characteristics taught within
PSHCE, Court Fields Experience, World Views and History explicitly and are key
themes within assemblies and tutor time.
- Students have the knowledge to make good moral
decisions and are empowered to call out others who break rules
- The school culture is one of a shared and collective
- Important messages are disseminated through assemblies
- PSHCE, SMSC, citizenship, equality and diversity
curriculum opportunities are explicitly planned and mapped
- Students who make mistakes and need more support work
through targeted programmes, addressing the cause and reflecting on not
repeating the issue.
- We strive to ensure that students leave Court Fields with a
good understanding of British values, of democracy, rule of law individual
liberty, respect and tolerance.
- Through the meticulously planned personal development
programme, meaningful tutor time, PSHCE sessions and assemblies, we support
students to understand current affairs beyond their local area
- We support our students in appreciating diversity,
recognising different religions, races, beliefs, and lifestyles.

physically and mentally, providing them with age-appropriate guidance on the
importance of physical activity, diet, financial responsibility, alcohol, 16
drugs and e-safety.
- Adults model positive behaviour to support our students to
be responsible, respectful, active citizens who contribute positively to
- Democracy, We ensure students are aware of their democratic
rights at an age-appropriate level so when they leave us they have an
understanding of democracy, government and the rights and responsibilities of
citizens. We ensure these topics fit in with our weekly themes used in
