Equality Objectives

The Equality Act of 2010 was introduced to ensure individuals were protected from discrimination, harassment and victimisation on the grounds of specific characteristics (referred to as protected characteristics). For schools, this means that it is unlawful to discriminate against students or treat them less favourably because of their gender; race; disability; religion or belief; gender reassignment; sexual orientation; pregnancy or maternity.

Under the Act, the school is expected to comply with the Public Sector Equality Duty. This requires us to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • Advance equality of opportunity between different groups
  • Foster good relations between different groups

As a public organisation, we are required to:

  • Publish information to show compliance with the Equality Duty. This is done via our Equality Policy
  • Publish Equality Objectives which are specific and measurable

Our Equality Objectives for 2018-2020 are:

  • To close gaps in students’ performance through monitoring of performance data and responding and intervening where variations between groups of learners show further progress could be made.
  • To improve knowledge, skills and attitudes to enable pupils to appreciate and value difference and diversity by promoting greater awareness of cultural and religious diversity in the assembly programme
  • To improve support for students’ mental well-being to help students remain in education through a school-wide approach that aims to promote resilience, recovery, ownership and empowerment.
  • To further improve support for SEN students through training and monitoring of provision to assess impact and develop specific, person centred support.
