At Cranbourne Primary School, we are committed to promoting equality of opportunity for pupils, staff, parents/carers, governors and other stakeholders by developing an environment that is welcoming, diverse and inclusive to all.
Cranbourne Primary School adheres to the recommendations outlined in the Equality Act 2010. Through our Single Equality Scheme Policy, we will identify and record the progress we have made towards achieving equality and tackling discrimination.
The Equality Act 2010 provides a single, consolidated source of discrimination law, covering all the types of discrimination that are unlawful.
The Public Sector Equality Duty has three aims under the general duty for schools, as referenced in the Equality Act 2010:
- Eliminate discrimination and other conduct that is prohibited by the Act.
- Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.
- Foster good relations across all characteristics - between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.
To ensure that Cranbourne Primary School meets the obligations under the Public Sector Equality Duty, we are required to comply with the following specific duties:
- To publish information to demonstrate how we are complying with the Public Sector Equality Duty.
- Prepare and publish the school's equality objectives.
