Whatever the nature of the local community, our students are growing up in a wider multicultural and multiracial society where they are subject to various attitudes towards minority groups, certain images of these groups portrayed by the media and their own unconscious bias.
The School stands against all forms of discrimination on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability or ability.
This is achieved through the following objectives:
1. Promotion of cultural understanding and awareness of different religious beliefs between different ethnic groups within our school community
2. Monitoring and promotion of the involvement of all groups of students in the extra-curricular life of the school, including leadership opportunities, especially students with special educational needs and disabilities
3. Actively close gaps in attainment and achievement between students and all groups of students; especially students eligible for free-school meals, students with special educational needs and disabilities, looked after children and students from minority ethnic groups
4. Continue to improve accessibility across the school for students, staff and visitors with disabilities, including access to specialist teaching areas
5. Endeavour to ensure diversity in the staff body and in leadership roles
6. Review relevant school policies to ensure they clearly reflect the aim of inclusivity
We are committed to the development of cohesive communities both within our school’s physical boundaries and within our local, national and global environments. Our school embraces the aim of working together with others to improve children’s educational and well-being outcomes
The Equality Act 2010 was introduced to ensure protection from discrimination, harassment and victimisation on the grounds of specific characteristics (referred to as protected characteristics). This means that schools cannot discriminate against pupils or treat them less favourably because of their sex (gender), race, disability, religion or belief, gender reassignment, sexual orientation or pregnancy or maternity.
The Act introduced requires all schools to comply with the Public Sector Equality Duty and two specific duties.
Public Sector Equality Duty requires us a school to:
Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation Advance equality of opportunity between different groups and foster good relations between different groups.
The Two “specific duties” requires us to:
-Publish information to show compliance with the Equality Duty
-Publish Equality Objectives at least every 4 years which are specific and measurable
The action plan and statement demonstrate these two specific duties.
We recognise that these duties reflect international human rights standards as expressed in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, the UN Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities, and the Human Rights Act 1998.
Our Equality Statement is based on the principles above and aims to ensure that:
‘All pupils and members of staff at our School are provided with opportunities to fulfil their potential whatever their sex, race, colour ethnic or national origin, marital status, age, sexual orientation, disability or religious belief.’
