Equality Statement

Equality Within the Academy

The academy is committed to promoting the welfare and equality of all its staff, pupils and other members of the academy community.

We welcome our public sector duty under the Equality Act 2010 to publish equality objectives and information. The aim for this is to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it

As part of this we will:

  • Publish information every year about our academy population
  • Outline how we have due regard for equality and how we promote community cohesion
  • Publish equality objectives to show how we plan to tackle particular inequalities and improve what we do

At the academy we work together to eliminate all forms of discrimination, harassment and victimisation. Progress towards meeting our equalities objectives is reviewed regularly by the senior leadership team and governing body.

Our academy improvement plan is compiled each year in discussion with all staff and governors. This makes use of comments from parents and students and aims to address inequalities that are shown through our data and raised through dialogue with all our stakeholders. Our aim is always to ensure that all students reach their full potential and make good progress.
