At the Moorland Federation we are devoted to fostering a workplace where all job applicants and all employees are treated as unique individuals, deserving of respect and dignity. We believe in the power of good communication to understand diverse perspectives, mitigate potential conflicts, and cultivate an inclusive environment. Within our schools, we encourage positive challenge to violations of human rights and are steadfast in our opposition to harassment, victimisation, and discriminatory behaviour.
Equal Opportunity for All
We stand by our commitment to providing equal opportunities for all, devoid of any form of harassment, victimisation, or direct or indirect discrimination. This pledge covers all legally protected characteristics (either by association or perception). It includes age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation. We are determined to prevent any disadvantage arising from disability and comply with our duty to make reasonable adjustments to the benefit of applicants and employees who have declared a disability.
Zero Tolerance for Discriminatory Behaviour
We firmly maintain that the workplace, its vicinity, and work-related social functions should be devoid of behaviours that discriminate, harass or victimise job applicants or individual employees. This is a non-negotiable aspect of our ethos, and any action contrary to these values will not be condoned.
Individual Responsibility and Respect for All
At the Moorland Federation, we believe in the power of collective action, driven by individual responsibility. We ask that each member of our community play their part, treating each other with the respect and dignity that each individual deserves. We expect every employee to adhere to these standards, ensuring their behaviour and actions align with our Equality Policy.
In the Moorland Federation, our commitment to equality is not just a policy – it's an integral part of our culture. We continually strive to ensure our community is one where everyone feels valued, heard, and respected, celebrating our diversity as our strength. Our commitment to equality reflects our vision: to provide a private school education in a public setting, accessible and inclusive for all.
