Chesterton works actively to celebrate difference and challenge racism, sexism, homophobia and all other forms of prejudice
The school takes positive action to promote racial harmony and to promote positive attitudes towards life in a multicultural and multi-ethnic and multi-faith school, through assemblies, the curriculum, extra-curricular and special projects throughout the year.
There is a continuous focus to ensure that all students have equal opportunities to achieve to the best of their ability regardless of their gender, ethnic or racial background, religion, ability or sexuality.
We actively promote the British Values of tolerance, fairness, respect for other faiths, and the rule of law and democracy.
