Core Behaviours

We are unified in our core behaviours. We display transparency, kindness and respect in all our interactions with others, and support each other in all our endeavours.  We are tenacious in our desire in making the difference together.

 

Diversity and Inclusion

Danes Educational Trust is committed to building a fair and inclusive culture where everyone can thrive and be of their best by embracing the differences they bring. 

Evidenced by our core values we recognise the importance of a safe and respectful place to work for our staff and learners, where there is no place for inequality of any kind.  

We continue to do everything we can to employ and educate without prejudice with guidance from the equality, diversity and inclusion specialist on our Trust Board.  Our progress has been recognised by the achievement of a Silver Equalities Award at St Clement Danes School, we will be exploring this recognition with other schools across the Trust.
