We recognise that the public sector equality duty has three aims, to:
- Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct under the Act
- Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
- Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
We have considered how well we currently achieve these aims with regard to the protected groups under the Equality Act (race, disability, gender, gender re-assignment, age, pregnancy and maternity, marital status, sexual orientation, religion and belief and sexual orientation).
We have also involved staff, pupils, parents and others in the following ways:
- Analysis of pupil data
- Existing and prospective parents representing pupils with particular protected characteristics.
To extend pupils’ questioning skills to enable them to improve their independent learning and thinking skills.
To raise the percentage of lessons to 40% that are good with outstanding or outstanding.
To increase the percentage of parents attending annual reviews to 90%
Please note the above objectives are currently under review.
