Unity College seeks to foster an atmosphere in which everyone flourishes, achieves and feels valued so that everybody feels they can contribute positively to the life of the College.
The College regularly evaluates its success in achieving this and determines priorities for improvement as part of the self-evaluation and improvement planning cycle. The College’s current objectives relating to equality are:
Ensure that leaders, staff and students create a positive environment in which bullying, aggression, discrimination and derogatory language are not tolerated so that all members of the College community feel safe.
Ensure that the College promotes equality of opportunity and diversity effectively so that all students understand, appreciate and respect difference in the world and its people, celebrating the things we share in common across cultural, religious, ethnic and socio-economic communities.
Ensure that students engage with views, beliefs and opinions that are different from their own in considered ways so that they show respect for the different protected characteristics as defined in law and no forms of discrimination are tolerated.
How we will achieve these objectives and the progress made towards them are detailed in action plans and the College’s SEF.
