Equality Diversity Inclusivity
Dauntsey’s is committed to creating a fully inclusive school.
At Dauntsey’s we aim to create a friendly and supportive environment, where staff and pupils have every opportunity to fulfil their potential and achieve their aspirations, both inside and outside the classroom. An essential part of achieving this goal is the school’s active engagement with the issues of the day and the fast-changing world in which we live.
We are fortunate to have a wide range of nationalities and backgrounds at the school, with each pupil and member of staff bringing something unique to our community. But we can always learn more about the world, about ourselves, and build a better understanding of equality, diversity and inclusivity (EDI). With this in mind, we have formed a partnership with Inclusion Labs, an independent organisation whose mission is to embed EDI into every young person’s educational, cultural and personal development.
Working with Inclusion Labs, we will develop an EDI Road Map, with the goal of understanding our strengths, and identifying areas of school life where we can encourage further diversity, equality and inclusivity.
Our EDI initiative is led by Justine Wall. The views of pupils are a key aspect of our planning, with additional input from everyone in the Dauntsey’s community: staff, parents and governors. Justine is actively engaged in gathering ideas from staff and pupils across the school.
Under the guidance of Inclusion Labs, the school is conducting an audit of our perceptions, behaviours and plans for the future. Inclusion Labs will support us in developing our action plan and the longer-term development of the programme.
We look forward to updating you on the next phase of the initiative, and we welcome any input from our Dauntsey’s community.

I am very excited to be Dauntsey’s EDI Lead - this is an area that I am not only very passionate about, but also one that, I believe, is of enormous importance to future generations.
