Promoting Equality

Following British Values week (April 2016) the school identified the children's knowledge of  'The Rule of Law' as an area that could be developed. With this in mind the following Equality Objective was set for the academic year 2016/17. This objective was approved by the Curriculum Committee on the 4th May 2016.

 

Our Lady of Grace Equality Objective 2016/17.

 

'To socially develop pupils through extending their understanding of the rule of law and their rights and responsibilities as British citizens.'

 

 

EQUALITY STATEMENT

 

As a school we welcome our duties under the Equality Act 2010 and are committed to:

 

  • eliminating discrimination, harassment and victimisation
  • advancing equality of opportunity
  • fostering good relations

 

We see all learners and potential learners, and their parents and carers as equal.

 

We understand the principles of the act and the work needed to ensure that those with protected characteristics are not discriminated against and are given equality of opportunity. 

 

A protected characteristic under the act covers the groups listed below:

  • age (for employees not for service provision)
  • disability
  • race

 

  • sex (including issues of transgender)
  • gender reassignment
  • maternity and pregnancy
  • religion and belief
  • sexual orientation
  • marriage and civil partnership (for employees)

 

In advancing equality of opportunity:

  • we aim to remove or minimise disadvantages suffered by people due to their protected characteristics;
  • we aim to meet the needs of people with certain protected characteristics where these are different from the needs of other people;
  • we encourage people with certain protected characteristics to participate in public life or in other activities where their participation is disproportionately low.
