Equality Act

Our commitment to equality.

 

Winnall Primary School recognises the importance of its equality duties and their relevance to achieving our goals.

 

We believe that everyone associated with the school should have the opportunity to fulfil their potential whatever their background, identity and circumstances. We are committed to supporting good community relations through helping our communities recognise and respect difference. We also seek to help overcome any related disadvantages, tackle prejudice, discrimination and their causes. By aiding equality we aim to support our education objectives, promote positive outcomes and secure a shared sense of belonging for all.

 

The focus of our Single Equality Policy  (see below) is to satisfy the requirements of the Equality Act 2010 to;

  • eliminate discrimination;
  • advance equality of opportunity; and
  • foster good relations;

to and between people with ‘protected characteristics’ (as defined by the Act). 

 

These characteristics cover;

  • age
  • disability
  • race
  • religion or belief
  • sex (gender)
  • gender reassignment
  • sexual orientation
  • marriage and civil partnership and
  • pregnancy and maternity

 

The requirements of the Act will also be reflected as appropriate in other school policies.  The improvement actions identified in the Policy will be reviewed and monitored for achievement on an annual basis.
