Equality and Diversity Objectives

The Trust is committed to:

  •  Supporting and promoting our academies' curriculum offers to ensure they
    provide students with access to meaningful understanding of diversity of
    cultures and ethnicities, and encourage integration and shun discrimination
  •  Supporting our academies' recruitment processes with a view to openly
    encourage a diverse range of applicants, and that applications are considered
    individually and comprehensively in order to ensure equality of opportunity
  • Closing the attainment gaps between "groups" of learners, with a particular
    focus on gender, students with additional learning needs and students from
    minority ethic groups
  •  Adopting proactive measures to further develop in all OAT employees and
    students across the chain a culture and ethos that embraces diversity and
    recognises the need for equality
  •  Ensuring OAT governors are appropriately trained in equality and diversity
    such that they are empowered to support and encourage the value of fairness
    and difference in the academies and communities they serve
