Equity, Diversity & Inclusion

Inclusion at LEO Academy Trust  
‘Excellence for ALL’
Central to the LEO Trust aims are: 
Everyone feels included, respected and valued
We make a difference to the communities we serve
At LEO Academy Trust, we have always championed inclusivity and equity in our schools through education. The LEO Academy Trust’s underpinning value of ‘community’ reflects our commitment to embracing and celebrating diversity in all that we do.  The LEO Trust aims to embed equality of opportunity, and create an education that provides pathways that reduce wide variations in education outcomes for protected and vulnerable groups. Together we can help everyone understand and be understood. Diversity is highly valued and Neurodiversity is a human right. 
The LEO Trust aims to provide appropriate and professional service to people who have protected characteristics. This should be through processes, attitudes, and behaviour and we seek to eliminate discrimination through unwitting prejudices, ignorance thoughtfulness and sterotyping, with the goal to ensure that no-one is disadvantaged. This includes socio-economic disadvantage. We want to work out how to avoid bias and make a better workplace for all schools.
LEO Academy Trust has a range of policies that support equity, diversity and inclusion:
