The Equality Act 2010

The Equality Act 2010 replaces previous anti-discrimination legislation with a single Act. The Equality Duty is set out in section 149 of the Act. It replaces the three previous public sector equality duties – for race, disability and gender – and covers the following protected characteristics:

  • Age

  • Disability

  • Gender reassignment

  • Marriage and civil partnership (but only in respect of eliminating unlawful discrimination)

  • Pregnancy and maternity

  • Race

  • Religion or belief

  • Sex

  • Sexual orientation

We ensure that we have due regard to the need to:

  • eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct that is prohibited by the Act

  • advance equality of opportunity between people who share a characteristic and those who don’t

  • foster good relations between people who share a characteristic and those who don’t.

Equality Objectives 

  • To promote pupils spiritual, moral, social and cultural development through appropriate curricular opportunities, with particular emphasis on promoting equality and diversity.

  • To diminish the differences between boys and girls in reading, writing and mathematics  by the end of KS2.

  • To review levels of parental and pupil engagement in learning and school life, across all activities to ensure equity and fairness in access and engagement
