Public bodies, including local-authority-maintained schools, are covered by the public sector equality duty in the Equality Act 2010.
As part of our duties we publish:
- an Equalities Information profile of our school based upon the protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010 – this is updated and published every year
- our school’s Equality Objectives – these are reviewed annually and updated at least once every 4 years
- for further information please view or download our Equalities Policy and Equalities Information and Objectives Policy in the School Policies section of our website.
We are currently working with Educate and Celebrate : Building a future of inclusion and social justice. This is supported by Durham Local Authority and was recognised by Ofsted as ‘best practice’ for successfully tackling homophobic bullying in 2011 and described as innovative and visionary in 2016.
