At Woodside we see the differences between people as enriching to society and something to be celebrated. We are committed to treating everyone fairly and hold any discrimination, bullying or exclusion of a person for any reason to be abhorrent and unacceptable. Our commitment to this has been established in our vision statement and outlined in our Equality and Diversity Policy.
We are also working to overcome any barriers to learning that any particular groups may have and have a range of interventions in place for this purpose.
We set specific targets for groups which we find sometimes achieve less highly than all children generally. In September 2016 we were presented with the Learning Workz Gold Award for Diversity by the deputy Mayor of Thurrock Tunde Ojetola.
