Principles

Our commitment to equality can be demonstrated in the following ways:

  • We endeavour to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with the utmost respect
  • We ensure the school is safe and secure and is a stimulating place for everyone
  • We recognise that people have different needs, and we understand that treating people equally does not always involve treating them in exactly the same way
  • We recognise that for some pupils extra support is needed to help them to achieve and be successful
  • We endeavour to ensure that people from different groups are consulted and involved in our decisions, for example through talking with pupils and parents and carers, and through our School Council

Legislation

  • We welcome our duty under the Education and Inspections Act 2006 to promote community cohesion
  • Under the Equality Act 2010 we welcome our general duty to eliminate discrimination, to advance equality of opportunity and to foster good relations
  • Similarly in accordance with the Equality Act 2010 we aim to make sure that no-one experiences less favourable treatment or discrimination because of their age; any disability they may have; their ethnicity, colour or national origin; their gender; their gender identity or reassignment; their marital or civil partnership status; being pregnant or having recently had a baby; their religion or beliefs; their sexual identity and orientation
  • We welcome the general principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) and accordingly have regard in particular for the needs of children and young people who are disadvantaged and vulnerable, and their parents and carers
