Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

We embrace our Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) under the Equality Act to:

  • eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • advance equality of opportunity between different groups
  • foster good relations between different groups

We recognise that it is unlawful to discriminate against someone because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

To help us achieve the aims of the Public Sector Equality Duty, we:

  • have a trust-wide Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy which sets out the key principles we work to
  • publish at least one specific and measurable equality objective every four years
  • publish an annual equality information statement

Our approach to equality, diversity and inclusion is aligned to our trust vision and values. Our overarching aim is, “To live our mantra of knowing our children and families, community and each other well, we will foster a sense of belonging within and across our organisation, enabling our young people, staff and volunteers to thrive. By becoming a trust of sanctuary, we will create a welcoming and safe environment for all.”

Our school’s equality objectives and equality information statement will be available shortly.
