Equalities Policy Statement – please refer to the Governance and GDPR Policies section on our School Policies page.

The Equality Act 2010 was introduced to ensure protection from discrimination, harassment and victimisation on the grounds of specific characteristics. For our school, 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 Equalities Policy which is linked below.
  • Publish Equality Objectives which are specific and measurable

Our Equalities Policy is in line with national guidance and contains information about how the academy complies with the Public Sector Equality Duty. We also give guidance to staff and outside visitors on our approach to promoting equality.

Our Equality Objectives reflect our priorities as a school and these are:

  • To use performance data to monitor student achievement and respond to variations between groups of learners, subjects, courses and key stages, trends over time and comparisons with others
  • To raise the awareness and skills of staff to promote fairness, equality and good relations in the context of their role
  • To provide an environment that welcomes, protects and respects diverse people
  • To ensure that all students are given the opportunity to make a positive contribution to the life of the school.
