At St John’s we view all members of our school as special and unique, who are created in God’s image and who deserve to be treated with respect and without any form of discrimination. Pupils and other members of the school community will be provided with the opportunity to experience, understand and celebrate diversity. We will therefore seek to ensure that everyone is equally valued and treats one another with respect and fairness.
