Equality Statement

Sept 2017 – Sept 2021

 

Public sector equality duty is part of the Equality Act 2010.  This states that every school has 3 general duties that they need to demonstrate they give good regard to.  These duties are to:

· Eliminate discrimination, harassment, victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010.

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

· Foster good relations across all protected characteristics – between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.

 

At Our Lady’s equality is at the heart of everything we do and is driven by the Gospel values; these values permeate all aspects of school life. Our objectives relating to these duties are as follows.
