Our objective is to develop a culture of inclusion in which all those connected to the school feel proud of their identity and able to participate fully in school life. The achievement of all children will be monitored and we all tackle discrimination by the positive promotion of equality, challenging bullying and stereotypes and creating an environment which champions respect for all. At Gusford Primary School we believe that diversity should be respected and celebrated by all those who learn, teach and visit here.
