Equalities Information and Objectives

Bierton CE Combined School demonstrates a strong culture of inclusion through the vision, values and culture of the school.  Staff and governors are committed to promoting equality of opportunity across the school community and take seriously the requirements of the Public Sector Equality Duty as defined by legislation in 2010:  http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2010/15/section/149.

 

The Public Sector Equality Duty aims to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act. By removing or minimising disadvantages suffered by people due to their protected characteristics.
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not. By taking steps to meet the needs of people from protected groups where these are different from the needs of other people
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not. By encouraging people from protected groups to participate in public life or in other activities where their participation is disproportionately low.
