Equality, diversity and inclusion

Welcome to SMS School, a place where diversity is celebrated, and every individual is valued for who they are. We pride ourselves on fostering a welcoming and inclusive community where students and staff can freely express their unique identities, regardless of their race, gender, or neurodiversity.

At SMS, we firmly believe in creating a safe space where nobody needs to feel shame or embarrassment about any part of themselves. We embrace and celebrate the different neurodiverse conditions, such as autism and dyslexia, recognising the strengths and talents they bring to our community.

Our commitment to inclusivity extends to our staff, deliberately recruiting individuals from diverse backgrounds, races, genders, and sexualities. We firmly believe that a diverse team enriches our school community, allowing everyone to learn from one another and grow together.

To promote understanding and appreciation for diverse cultures and identities, we actively take part in events like Black History Awareness and Pride Awareness. Our big map proudly highlights the diverse places our students and staff call home, reflecting our global community.

SMS School is more than just an educational institution; it is a place where every student can feel proud and safe to be themselves. Our core values – ambition, community spirit, curiosity, respect, and resilience – form the foundation of our supportive and compassionate environment.

We invite you to join us on this journey of acceptance, where every individual is celebrated for their true self. At SMS School, we stand united in our commitment to creating an inclusive and nurturing community, where everyone can flourish and celebrate their unique identity with pride.
