Equal Opportunities

Our Responsibility

All aspects of our school life will be based on the foundation of inclusion, equality and diversity. The Equality Act came into force in 2010 and is in place to ensure fairness and that equality legislation is clearer and stronger. The Equality Act replaces nine pieces of discrimination law under one umbrella and emphasises nine potential elements for discrimination as follows:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Ethnicity, colour or national origin
  • Gender
  • Gender identification (reassigned or plan to reassign gender)
  • Marital or civil partnership status
  • Pregnancy or maternity
  • Religion or belief
  • Sexual identity and orientation
