Equality and Disability Policies

Equality Policy (Summary)

Reigate College is committed to ensuring students are offered equal rights and opportunities. This commitment applies to all aspects of College life.

We have a comprehensive equal opportunities strategy which:

  • covers all aspects of anti-discriminatory practice
  • is monitored regularly.

We will:

  • provide equal access to all aspects of education, irrespective of class, race, sex, age, sexual orientation or previous educational achievement
  • ensure that disabled people, including those with learning difficulties, are treated fairly
  • make all reasonable adjustments and provisions to ensure that disabled people are not substantially disadvantaged.

We aim to provide an atmosphere which:

  • respects cultural diversity
  • helps students gain a positive image of themselves at all levels of achievement.

We believe that in such a caring community students will gain the skills, knowledge and understanding to make them critically aware of what they see, hear and read.
