Over recent years, schools have been working towards an improved understanding of the diverse nature of their communities, and recognising their role in promoting an understanding of equality for different groups of people. Much of this work is in response to legislation that places an increased duty on schools and other settings, but it also sits within the specific context of a school’s role in providing learning and opportunities for all - it is about understanding, fairness, rights and justice.
The recognition of diversity and promotion of inclusive and equality practices will help to overcome disparity.
The Equality Act 2010 harmonised and streamlined legislation that came before it. The Equalities Information Document seeks to bring together all relevant information and statistics relating to the school. Policies referred to in the document can be accessed via our Current Policies page. The updated Equality Action Plan highlights ongoing actions.
