Equalities

Our statement of equality is simple; we strive to ensure all children achieve and flourish, irrespective of gender, race, need or background.

We welcome our duties under the Equality Act 2010. Under the general duty of public sector equality duty, in the exercise of our functions, have due regard to the need to:

• Advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it;•
• Foster good relations between persons who share a relevant protected characteristic and persons who do not share it
