Equalities at Priestley Primary

The Equality Act 2010 requires us to publish information that demonstrates that we have due regard for the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation and any other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010

  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it

  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and people who do not share it.

At Priestley Primary School we are committed to ensuring all are treated equally through the following:

  • endeavouring to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and respectfully

  • making sure that our school is a safe and secure place for everyone

  • recognising that people have different needs and we understand that treating people equally does not always involve treating them the same

We always aim to make sure that no one within our school community experiences less favourable treatment or discrimination due to:

  • Their age

  • A disability

  • Their ethnicity, colour or national origin

  • Their gender

  • Their gender identity (they have reassigned or plan to reassign their gender)

  • Their marital or civil partnership status

  • Their being pregnant or having recently had a baby

  • Their religion or belief

  • Their sexual identity and orientation.

As a school we recognise that some pupils may need extra support at different times so that they are able to achieve more and be as successful as we aim for them to be.  As a team we aim to consult different groups through a range of communication so that they are involved in our decisions, especially pupils, parents and those of us who can be treated less favourably.  We do this in a range of ways and always welcome suggestions from all in our school community.
