The Equality Act 2010 was passed by Parliament to promote equality. It applies to all organisations, including schools. As a result our school needs to ensure it is treating all pupils, staff, parents, governors, volunteers and visitors without discrimination in respect of factors specified by the Act. These are:
• Ethnicity and race
• Gender identity and reassignment
• Marriage and civil partnership
• Pregnancy, maternity and breast-feeding
• Sexual orientation
What Sacred Heart School has to do?
Our responsibility is to ensure that everyone who attends, works in or visits our school is treated equally.
We need to plan the strategies and policies required by the Equalities Act for the benefit of the whole school community.
