Equality And diversity
The Trumacar Community believes in the whole Community and believes in Equality for All
Trumacar Nursery and Community Primary School is proud that it fully supports equality in all aspects of its work – for pupils, staff, governors and parents as well as for visitors and other community members linked with the school. This pride has been recognised by Lancashire County Council who awarded the school the Full Equality Mark in 2016.
Equality is integral to all schools and workplaces and the promotion of equality of opportunity for all pupils underpins Trumacar school life. We ensure that high quality provision meets the diverse needs of our pupils, staff, governors and parents and promotes not just equality of opportunity but improving outcomes for all pupils regardless of background.
More information about Equality can be found in our Equality Policy.
The lead for Equality and Diversity in school is Ceri Hamer.

We want the children to know that they can be successful in the future no matter what their starting points may be, no matter what influences they may have in their lives, and no matter who they truly are – and we celebrate individuals and diversity as often as we can and promote individuality through the use use of positive images, stories, reference books, resources and play equipment and through discussion.
From our own Equality Audit we found that the school is already doing an awful lot to promote equality and this is having a very positive impact on behaviour, understanding, respect and the upholding of our Trumacar Values.
The school proudly holds a number of awards which show the school’s strength in promoting equality and celebrating diversity.
In assemblies we also look at leaders and famous people who have done ground breaking things with regard to equality.
