Astley Park School

                                         Equality Statement and Objectives 2020-21

Equality Statement

Astley Park School seeks to provide Equality of Opportunity for all members for the school community whatever their disability, age, gender, race, nationality, religion, marital status, maternity, sexual orientation or background. We recognise that people have different needs and treating them equally does not always mean treating them the same. We recognise that some members of the school community will need additional support to enable them to fully access school services. We strive to challenge discrimination and prejudice of all levels in the school community. We are working towards reaccreditation of the LLC Equality Mark and having successfully achieving all the 6 Equality badges, these being Race, Gender, Socio-Economic, Disability, Sexual Orientation and Religion and Belief.

 

Specific Duties

We have two Specific Duties under the 2010 Equality Act:

• To publish information to demonstrate our compliance with the general duty to

promote equality.

• To prepare and publish one or more equality objectives.

We have therefore prepared this document to show what we do to promote equality of opportunity and highlight the equality objectives we have prepared.

 

School objectives

Objective 1: To determine strand lead champions for the six different badges within the Equality Mark.

Objective 2: To provide outreach support to other schools to share our outstanding practice.

Objective 3: To prepare for reaccreditation of all six badges.
