Equality and Diversity

Here you will find details of how we meet our duties under the Equality Act 2010 and support our commitment to providing an environment in which each individual has complete equality of opportunities and do not suffer any discrimination, whether directly or indirectly.

Our General Equality Duty

In October 2010, the new Equality Act introduced a Public Sector Equality Duty, which requires our school to have due regard to the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not

Protected Characteristics

There are 9 Protected Characteristics under the Equality Act; Age, Disability, Gender Reassignment, Marriage and Civil Partnership, Pregnancy and Maternity, Race, Religion or Belief, Sex and Sexual Orientation. The Equality Duty requires our school to consider how our activities affect the people who share these different protected characteristics and to publish information to show how we do this.

Equality Information

In order to meet our Equality Duty, we are required to publish Equality Information about how our policies and practices affect those with Protected Characteristics. 

Equality Objectives

As well as publishing Equality Information, we are required to establish at least one Equality Objective to address any areas of inequality, or possible inequality, identified as part of our analysis. Details of our objectives can be found within our Equality Information and Objectives (Public Sector Equality Duty) Statement for Publication. We will publish Equality Objectives at least every four years.

In our school, we teach children about equality and diversity explicitly through our bespoke personal development curriculum, SHINE. We are also currently working towards the School of Sactuary Award.
