Equality and Accessibility

Here at Queen's Hill Primary School it is really important to us that all stakeholders (pupils, parents, staff and members of the local community) are consulted and share their voice when developing policies. For us, it is also imperative to consult these stakeholders to promote equality and eliminate discrimination.
