Portway Infant School is committed to upholding all elements of the Equality Act October 2010.
We follow and revise our Equality Action Plan ( 2020-2024) continually review and seek to improve our provision regularly.
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 the need for:
1. Eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and other conduct that is prohibited under the Equality Act 2010.
2. Advance equality of opportunity between persons who share a protected characteristic and persons who do not share it.
3. Foster good relations between persons who share a protected characteristic and persons who do not share it.
The governing body and school are committed to a policy of equality and aims to ensure that no employee, job applicant, pupil or other member of the school community is treated less favourably on grounds of sex, race, colour, ethnic or national origin, marital status, age, sexual orientation, disability or religious belief.
Any behaviour, comments or attitudes that undermine or threaten an individual’s self-esteem on these grounds will not be tolerated . We aim to provide equal access to high quality educational opportunities and to ensure that everyone feels that they are a valued member of the school community. We seek to provide a safe and happy environment where all can flourish and where physical and cultural diversity is celebrated.
All members of the school community are responsible for promoting the school’s Equality Action Plan and are obliged to respect and act in accordance with the policy.
Additionally, we have a duty to publish our equality objectives and these are set out in our Equality Action Plan below, together with details of how we plan to achieve them:
