Maiden Erlegh Trust takes very seriously its responsibilities and duties under the Equality Action. Our motto of "schools for the community, schools as a community" as well as our vision and ethos illustrate our commitment to treat everyone fairly and respectfully, to embrace and celebrate difference and to support every student in our schools to meet their potential.

- Eliminating unlawful discrimination*, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by The Act.
- Advancing equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
- Fostering good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
