Equality and Diversity

Our school’s equality and diversity objective for 2022/2023 is:

To ensure all staff are aware of their duties under the Equality Act 2010 and are aware of how to report any discriminatory incidents or practices.

We have chosen this objective:

To ensure our staff understand their duties in relation to good equality practices.

This has been continued from last year as we continue to embed our ‘No Outsiders’ Programme at the school.

We plan to achieve this objective by:

Using staff meeting time to cover the issues in depth.

Embedding a whole school ‘No Outsiders’ programme.

No Outsiders

Our School Ethos – there are no outsiders

How we will achieve this ethos

Shared voice and language 

  1. Weekly assemblies 
  2. Half termly lessons – linked to literature
  3. Displays 
  4. Praise and sanction 
  5. All stakeholders buying into this

High profile

Why is this ethos so important?  

Our children leave us destined for the workplace, for a role in modern Britain. We want our children to champion inclusion and celebrate diversity. To feel that they never are an outsider and to welcome all that they meet. We believe that no one is  born to hate – it is learnt – we need to teach another lesson to spread love and  show love.

The public sector equality act duty came into force across Great Britain on April 2011 – it means that public bodies have to consider all individuals when carrying out their day to day work – in shaping policy, in delivering services and in relation to their own employees. 

  1. Due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination 
  2. Advance equality of opportunity 
  3. Foster good relations between different people
