Equality and Diversity
Beccles Free School is a fully inclusive school providing a quality education and experience for all its learners. The school promotes equality of opportunity for all, giving every individual the chance to achieve their potential, free from prejudice and discrimination and has created a culture of respect for the diversity and breadth of its community enabling everyone to participate in the life of the school.
The Equality Act (2010) means it is unlawful to discriminate against someone by treating them less favourably because of their:
- religion or belief
- sexual orientation
- pregnancy or maternity
Beccles Free School will not tolerate any behaviour or language that could be considered to be discriminatory. The situation will be investigated and addressed where discrimination is seen, heard or reported to a member of staff. Parents of students with a specific concern or issue are encouraged to contact the school as soon as possible so it can be addressed as appropriate.
