Equality Duty Statement
Connaught School for Girls aims to ensure that its ethos, policies and practices respect and protect the rights of all individuals and that everyone is enabled to make the most of their abilities and qualities.
Equality is a core school value, central to the wider issue of social inclusion. It underpins the school curriculum and it is a key consideration in employment policy and practice. We believe that equality of opportunity is the central principle underlying all the work we do.
The Equality Act 2010 clearly states that the following groups must be taken into account. People identified in the following groups are considered to have a protected characteristic.
- Sex (gender)
- Race (ethnicity)
- Pregnancy and Maternity
- Religion and Belief
- Sexual Orientation
- Gender Reassignment
- Marriage and Civil Partnership
The Public Sector Equality Duty requires the school to publish information about Equalities
This information must be clearly linked to the three aims (General Duties) of the Public Sector Equality Duty April 2012.
- Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Act.
- Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
- Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
relating to the above general duties:
- Publish and analyse information about the school annually
- Set equality objectives, and review on a three year cycle
- These actions will be taken after analysing the information about our school.
