Gravel Hill School

 

Equality Act 2010

Our school is committed to equality both as an employer and a service-provider:

 

• We ensure that everyone is treated fairly and with respect.

• We make sure that our school is a safe and secure place for everyone.

• We recognise that people have different needs, and we understand that treating people equally does not always involve

       treating them all the same.      

• We recognise that some pupils need extra support to help them to achieve and be successful.

• We make sure that people from different groups are consulted and involved in our decisions, for example through talking

       to pupils and parents/carers, and through our School Council.

• We make sure no-one experiences less favourable treatment or discrimination because of:

 

 Their age

 A disability

 Their ethnicity, colour or national origin

 Their gender

 Their gender identity (they have reassigned or plan to reassign their gender)

 Their marital or civil partnership status

 They being pregnant or having recently had a baby

 Their religion or belief

 Their sexual identity and orientation.  

 

We welcome our duty under the Education and Inspections Act 2006 to promote community cohesion, and our duties under the Equality Act 2010 to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations.

 

Our Equality Objectives for 2016/2017 are:

 

To ensure the proportion of pupils eligible for Pupil Premium funding who attain age related expectations or higher is broadly in line with all other pupils in the school

 

To promote the British values of democracy, respect for the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of others with different faiths and beliefs throughout our curriculum, with particular reference to issues of equality and diversity.
