Equality Objectives


The Equalities Act 2010 states that all schools must publish specific and measurable equality objectives.

Our equality objectives are based on the identified needs of the school as set out in the School Improvement Plan.

We are committed to taking any necessary action to ensure there is equality across the school and that discrimination of any kind of disadvantage is eliminated. 

We are constantly reviewing our practice to ensure that we meet all of our equality objectives.
