Equality

 

Equality Statement

We aim to be a community where everyone is treated fairly and with respect. We want everyone to reach their potential, and recognise that for some pupils extra support is needed to help them to achieve and be successful.

We welcome our general duty under the Equality Act 2010 to ensure that in our day-to-day activities, practices and policies we have due regard for the need to:

  • Eliminate discrimination
  • Foster good relations and positive partnerships
  • Promote/advance equality of opportunity

We are required to publish equality information as well as equality objectives, which show how we plan to reduce or remove particular inequalities.
