Equality Information and Objectives
Cleeve Primary Academy is committed to ensure equality of educational opportunity and support for all pupils, parents, carers and staff irrespective of sex, race, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation, pregnancy, gender reassignment, gender identity, age and socio-economic background. We aim to provide a fully inclusive school in which every person feels proud of their identity and able to participate fully within their individual school community. We believe that a diverse school and community is a strength which should be respected and celebrated by all those who are employed, learn, teach and visit here.
This policy reflects the Equality Act 2010 which harmonises and replaces previous legislation including the Race Relations Act 1976/2000, Disability Discrimination Act 1975/2005, Gender Recognition Act 2004 and Sex Discrimination Act 1975. The policy therefore supersedes all previous school policies on Disability, Ethnicity (i.e., Race) and Gender. Through this policy Cleeve Primary School (Academy) will fulfil its public duty to have due regard to the need to eliminate unlawful discrimination, advance equality of opportunity, and foster good relations in connection with disability, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual identity, and where appropriate, age (applicable to employees only). The guiding principles in this policy refer to all individuals and therefore are equally applicable to pupils, staff, governors and visitors to Cleeve Primary School.
