UK Feminista Action Pledge

At The JCB Academy, we are proud to announce our commitment to creating a school environment that actively combats sexism and sexual harassment. By taking the UK Feminista: Action Pledge, we have joined a nationwide movement dedicated to fostering equality and respect within educational settings.

Our Commitment

Guided by the principles of the UK Feminista: Action Pledge, we are implementing comprehensive strategies to address and prevent sexism and sexual harassment across our academy. This pledge is a testament to our unwavering commitment to promoting a culture of respect, dignity, and equality for all learners and staff.

What We’re Doing

  • Whole School Approach: We are adopting a holistic approach to combat sexism and sexual harassment, ensuring that our policies, practices, and educational content reflect our commitment to gender equality.
  • Education and Awareness: Incorporating gender equality into our curriculum and through extracurricular activities, we aim to educate our learners about the importance of respect and equality, challenging gender stereotypes and discriminatory behaviours.
  • Support Systems: Establishing robust support mechanisms for those affected by sexism or sexual harassment, ensuring they have a safe and supportive environment to report concerns and receive the help they need.
  • Staff Training: Our staff are undergoing specialised training provided by UK Feminista, equipping them with the tools and knowledge to identify, challenge, and prevent sexist behaviours and harassment.
  • Community Engagement: Engaging our entire school community, including parents and guardians, in discussions and actions to foster an inclusive and respectful school culture.
