Equality Statement

At BHOA 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 Voice. 
  • We aim to make sure that no-one experiences harassment, less favourable treatment or discrimination because of their age; any disability they may have; their ethnicity, colour or national origin; their gender; their gender identity or reassignment; their marital or civil partnership status; being pregnant or having recently had a baby; their religion or beliefs; their sexual identity and orientation.
