Equality Objectives

We are committed to promoting equal opportunities for all groups of students, staff and stakeholders.

We are publishing our public sector duty to the Equality Act 2010, in order to demonstrate our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.

The concept of equality is embedded throughout all school practices and policies both implicitly and explicitly. 

The school’s aim is to provide for all students, irrespective of ethnic origins or ability, enabling each one to fulfil their learning potential with education that meets their needs.  students are valued for themselves and the school is a place where the dignity and capacity of each person is respected.

The school will promote the principles of fairness and justice; all members of the school community, students, parents/carers, visitors, governors and staff will be treated with equal respect and provided with opportunities to achieve.

The Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) provides a framework to support our commitment to valuing diversity as well as addressing the statutory areas of:

A. Eliminating unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation.

B. Advancing equality of opportunity between different groups.

C. Fostering good relations between different groups.

The Public Sector Equality Duty also ensures that we continue to tackle issues of disadvantage and underachievement of different groups, since breaking down barriers to learning, and increasing life choices for all students, is a key part of our vision.
