Education is provided without compulsory charges to parents. Most activities are financed by the school with funds received from the Local Education Authority. There are, however, some
valuable educational activities which the school cannot provide without seeking some financial support from parents. The
Governors have agreed a policy statement on Charging and Remissions.
The School has an Equality and Diversity Policy and is committed to taking positive steps to reduce any disadvantage experienced by individuals or groups. It wholeheartedly supports the statutory requirements laid down in the Equality Act 2010, which make it unlawful for an employer or an employee to discriminate or to treat an individual differently on the grounds of disability, gender, race, religion, sex or sexual orientation. The School also extends the same principle to marital status, religious beliefs, age (except when complying with statutory or other requirements) and sexual orientation.
DISABILITY ACT 2010
The School complies with the Disability Act of 2010. We have a Disability Equality Scheme that is aimed at improving the
provision of education, facilities and access for all pupils, staff and visitors to the school. Admissions into the school are dealt with by Newport City Council and this includes pupils with any form of disability.
SCHOOL SECURITY & PROPERTY SAFEGUARDING
The school is alarmed with a sophisticated security and fire prevention system throughout the campus. All visitors to the school are required to sign in at the main office in the Forge Building.
