Equality Objectives

 

The Equality Act 2010 requires us to publish information that demonstrates that we have due regard for the need to:

 

Eliminate unlawful  discrimination, harassment, victimisation  and any other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010

 

Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it

 

Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.

 

 

Sutton CE (VC) Primary school is an inclusive school and is committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all children, staff and potential job applicants.

We aim to create a supportive and inclusive working environment in which all individuals are able to make best use of their skills, free from discrimination or harassment, and in which all decisions are based on merit.

 

Our approach is based upon the following key objectives (March 2017):

 

1. All learners are of equal value

 

2. We recognise and respect difference

 

3. We foster positive attitudes and relationships and a shared sense of cohesion and belonging.

 

4. We observe good equalities practice in staff recruitment, retention and development.

 

5. We have the highest expectations of all our children.
