Public bodies, including local authority maintained schools, must comply with the public-sector equality duty in the Equality Act 2010.
The Equality Act 2010 was introduced to ensure all members of a school community are protected from harassment, victimisation and discrimination on the grounds of specific, or ‘protected’ characteristics. This means that schools cannot discriminate against individuals because of their race, age, gender, gender reassignment, disability, sexual orientation religion, beliefs or pregnancy.
We are committed to ensuring all members of our school can work and learn in a respectful and nurturing environment. Our Equality Objectives are central to this commitment.
Our Equality Objectives
To realise the school vision, create an inclusive culture and ensure equality of opportunity for all we aim to:
Ensure equality and diversity are promoted across the curriculum
Ensure equality of opportunity with extra-curricular and enrichment activities for students with all protected characteristics
Promote high academic expectations for all students, including those with different protected characteristics
Foster a nurturing environment that develops good relationships between people with different protected characteristics
Challenge discrimination, harassment and victimisation against people with different protected characteristics
