A number of media outlets have run pieces about an upcoming Employment Tribunal. To respect the legal process, we are unable to comment in detail on the specifics of the case.
For clarity, however, it is important to note that the local authority advised us to refer the matter to Prevent, as is common practice for schools and colleges. The matter was reviewed and we were subsequently advised that it did not meet the threshold for further action from Prevent. The Employment Tribunal proceedings are ongoing.
Trent College is a school with a Christian ethos where we are proud of our commitment to supporting the wellbeing of all our students, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender and sexuality.
We seek opportunities to establish the most current understanding of the fast-moving landscape our community is living in, so that we can best serve our pupils’ needs and those of our staff. We work hard to stay abreast of the most current thinking on inclusivity, including the fast-moving LGBT+ landscape.
We are a community that seeks to be characterised by the inclusive, empathetic and caring approach to and by the pupils. We work tirelessly in our aim that they are equipped to thrive in day-to-day modern life in all of its facets.
