Equality Information

All schools are required to have an equality duty.  This has two parts, the 'general' duty and 'specific' duties.
The general duty is the overarching legal requirement for schools and means they must consider how their policies, practices and day to day activities impact on pupils and staff. Schools are required to have 'due regard' to the need to: 
  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • Advance equality of opportunity
  • Foster good relations 
  • Follow robust recruitment procedures, in line with the 'Keeping children safe in education' DfE statutory guidance, to safeguard and promote the welfare of children
With the above in mind, our equality objectives for 2012-2015 are:
  • To narrow any gaps in attainment and progress that have arisen between groups of pupils within the school community by ensuring that all groups and individuals have their needs fully met in order to achieve their full potential
  • To promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through all appropriate curricular opportunities with particular reference to issues of equality and diversity, with a view to reducing the number of incidents of hostile attitudes and behaviour towards minority groups
