Wellfield is an inclusive school and we focus on the well-being and progress of every student and where all members of our community are of equal worth.

Having a Single Equalities Policy in place ensures that they continue to tackle and monitor issues of disadvantage and underachievement of different groups.
All our students are of equal value whether or not they are disabled, whatever their race, culture, national origin or national status, whatever their gender, whatever their religious or non-religious faith.
