Equality Objectives

SINGLE EQUALITY SCHEME

 

The Equality Act 2010 introduced a single Public Sector Equality Duty that applies to public bodies, including maintained schools and Academies, and extends to certain protected characteristics race, disability, sex, age, religion or belief, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity and gender reassignment. This combined equality duty came into effect in April 2011. It has three main elements. In carrying out their functions, public bodies are required to have due regard to the need to:


· Eliminate discrimination and other conduct that is prohibited by the Act,


· Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it,


· Foster good relations across all characteristics - between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.

Our Equality Objectives for 2021-23 are:

 

  • To become an adoption friendly school - following the guidelines.
  • Narrow any gaps in the performance and attainment of groups of pupils, e.g. boys and girls, children with English as an additional language (EAL), children with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) and Disadvantaged children.

 

St Anthony's is aware of the requirements of the Equality Act and will comply with non-discrimination provisions.
