A Happy Place to Learn

Equality and Diversity

Equality

  • The new OFSTED inspection framework makes clear that tackling inequalities and disadvantages should be reflected in every aspect of school life.
  • What is the Equality Act of 2010? The Equality Act 2010 replaced nine major Acts of Parliament as well as almost a hundred sets of regulations dealing with equality and discrimination.
  • The Act provides a single, consolidated source of discrimination law, covering all the types of discrimination that are unlawful.
  • Everything a school does must be fair, non-discriminatory and not put individuals or groups of people at a disadvantage.
  • A school must not discriminate, harass or victimise a pupil in relation to religion, gender or race in handling:
  • Admissions
  • The way it provides education for pupils.
  • How it provides pupils access to any benefit, facility or service.
  • Excluding a pupil or subjecting them to any other detriment.
  • Treating a person less favourably because they have one or more characteristics would be unlawful.

The protected characteristics are: Age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage/civil partnership, race, pregnancy/maternity, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation.

The protected characteristics of age and marriage/civil partnership apply to schools as employers, but not in relation to their provision for pupils.

The School must conform to legal standards in treating all children equally regardless of race, gender, age and disability. We have an Action Plan to ensure that we do so.

Diversity

Diversity of School Population

Presently in our school we have:

  • 95.3% White British
  • 0.5% Indian Background
  • 1.4% Asian Background
  • 0.2% Chinese Background
  • 1.9% Mixed Background
  • 0.7% Any Other White Background
  •  

Making Progress

If any of our children do not make required progress - staff will always ensure the child has intervention.

This school recognises the individuality of all of the children and tries to include the requirements of each child (within the Equality framework detailed above) through an Inclusion Policy.
