Political Impartiality Statement

Prince Albert Community Trust is committed to maintaining a politically impartial environment that fosters open dialogue, critical thinking, and respect for diverse perspectives. As an educational institution, we recognise the importance of providing a space where students, staff, and members of the school community can engage in discussions on various topics, including those of a political nature.


Our commitment to impartiality ensures that our schools remain a neutral ground where individuals of differing political beliefs can coexist harmoniously, fostering an inclusive and respectful learning environment.


While we encourage active civic engagement and the exploration of political ideologies, Prince Albert Community Trust does not endorse or promote any specific political party, candidate, or ideology. Our schools remain neutral in matters of politics, and we encourage our community members to approach political discussions with open-mindedness, empathy, and a commitment to understanding different perspectives.


We are dedicated to providing an education that empowers students to think critically, make informed decisions, and engage responsibly in civic life. By maintaining political impartiality, we aim to create an environment that supports the development of well-rounded individuals who are prepared to contribute positively to society.


This commitment to political impartiality extends to all Trust and school-sponsored events, activities, and communications. We encourage our school communities to uphold these principles and engage in constructive dialogue that reflects the values of respect, tolerance, and open-mindedness.


Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in creating a learning environment that values diversity and promotes community cohesion.
