Our school's equality and diversity objective 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.
We plan to achieve this objective by:
Using staff meeting time to cover the issues in depth.
Developing a whole school No Outsiders programme.
Please follow this link to the ALT Equality Section.
How we will achieve this ethos
Shared voice and language
Half termly lessons - linked to literature
Praise and sanction
All stakeholders buying into this
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.
Due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination
Advance equality of opportunity
Foster good relations between different people
