Promoting equality and community cohesion at Ormiston Forge Academy (OFA)
At OFA we have a strong commitment to fairness and equality in everything that we do.
We try to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect.
We work hard to make sure that the academy is a safe and secure environment for everyone.
We recognise that people have different needs, and we understand that treating people equally does not always involve treating them all exactly the same.
We recognise that for some students extra support is needed to help them to achieve and be successful.
We try to make sure that people from different groups are consulted and involved in our decisions, for example through talking to students and parents/carers, and through our Student Council.
We aim to make sure that no-one experiences harassment, less favourable treatment or discrimination because of the following protected characteristics: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
