Equality and Inclusion

 

St Thomas Aquinas Catholic Primary School is committed to upholding all elements of the Equality Act 2010. We have adopted a policy and through our objectives, continually review and seek to improve our provision in this regard. 

The new General Duty replaces the three-existing public sector equality duties for disability, race and gender. It covers all protected characteristics and has three main aims requiring public bodies to have due regard to: 

  • Eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and other conduct that is prohibited under the Equality Act 2010.
  • Advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a protected characteristic and persons who do not share it.
  • Foster good relations between persons who share a protected characteristic and persons who do not share it.  

We are committed to:

  • Dealing with and eliminating prejudiced based incidents
  • Closing the gap in attainment for all children
  • Engagement with local communities
  • Policies and practices that promote equality and address inequalities.
