Equality and diversity

The Bedford Sixth Form is committed to the advancement and promotion of equality and diversity. We aim to provide a learning and working environment which values individuals equally.

Equality and diversity

It is our duty and obligation under the Equality Act 2010 to:

  • eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • advance quality or opportunity 
  • foster good relations between different groups

We aim to provide a learning and working environment which values individuals equally and does not disadvantage individuals by discriminating on any grounds including age, disability, gender (sex), gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.

For current information regarding Equality and Diversity, please visit the Equality and Human Rights Commission website.

As an organisation, we are aware that discrimination exists in many forms. We encourage all our staff and students alike to ensure that their behaviour is not discriminatory and does not make any person feel uncomfortable. The Bedford Sixth Form will not tolerate harassment, bullying, victimisation or discrimination, and has procedures in place to deal with, and provide support for, individuals involved in such incidents.

The Bedford Sixth Form is a place where people from a range of cultures and backgrounds study and work, with a variety of beliefs, attitudes, values and abilities. We encourage everyone to share their experiences and celebrate the diversity of the sixth form.
