Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion
At Tring, we believe is everyone’s responsibility to come together and stand for equity, equality, diversity and inclusion. We want to eliminate all forms of unfair discrimination, harassment or other oppressive behaviour and will challenge all stereotyping and prejudice.
At Tring School we want to promote equity, equality, diversity and inclusion by raising awareness of the need to recognise and respect people’s differences, and by making sure all individuals are treated equally and fairly. This is regardless of their age, gender, religion, disability, sexual orientation, or race. No one should have a suboptimal experience at Tring School.
We want all staff, all students and all visitors at Tring to have positive and open minded attitudes recognising that equity, equality, diversity and inclusion is a strength in our society and should be celebrated, valued and respected. Through their school journey, all students will be prepared for life inside a diverse society. Our teaching effectively celebrates, prepares, addresses and embraces the realities that come with living and working in a diverse school, community, country and world.
