Willowfield School is committed to promoting understanding of the principles and practices of equality and justice. We aim to equip students with an awareness of our diverse society and to appreciate the value of difference. We believe we can achieve this best by striving to be an excellent inclusive neighbourhood comprehensive school whose student population, staff team and governing body reflects the diversity of the local community it serves. Everyone at Willowfield is regarded as of equal worth and importance, irrespective of ability, colour, culture, origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, disability, class or personal circumstances. Every aspect of Willowfield School activity has an equal opportunities dimension. This may be expressed explicitly in teaching materials and display, implicitly in classroom practice, or as part of the 'hidden curriculum' of social interaction amongst and between staff and students.
