We, at Laycock, pride ourselves at being inclusive and acknowledge and appreciate equality.
We have chosen to use the Equality Act to enhance our curriculum and make sure that our children leave our school knowing what equality means, educated about all types of life choices and – most importantly- rights as a child, adult and human being. We challenege stereotypes, break barriers and welcome all suggestions, opinions and ways of life.

- Democracy and ability to vote;
- Te right to be safe, looked after and privacy;
- Marriage rights;
