Under the Equality Act 2010 public bodies must publish an equality objective or objectives.
The Equality Act of 2010 says that schools and other public bodies must:
Encourage good relations and ensure everyone has equality of opportunity.
Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation.
Help make sure everyone has an equal chance to make the most of their lives and talents.
In line with our duties under the Equality Act, we assess our existing practices in relation to equality and consider objectives to help us improve further.
These objectives are:
Promotion of cultural understanding, awareness and respect of different religious beliefs between different ethnic groups within our school community.
Monitor and promote the involvement of all groups of students in the extra-curricular life of the school, especially students with learning difficulties and disabilities.
Actively work to close gaps in attainment between students and all groups of students.
Continue to improve accessibility across the school for students, staff and visitors with disabilities.
Reduce the incidence of the use of homophobic, sexist and racist language used by students in the school.
